Oklahoma crash claims Watson
MOORE, Okla. - A former Ville Platte resident died in Oklahoma after being struck by two passing motorists.
According to published reports in Oklahoma, Kamenski Donray Watson, 27, died Saturday, August 16, after being struck by two vehicles near Geronimo.
According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports, Watson of Moore, Oklahoma, was driving a 1997 Cadillac on I-44, near mile-marker 27, when he allegedly fell asleep at the wheel and struck the center dividing wall, leaving his vehicle disabled in the highway’s left lane with no visible taillights or flashers at approximately 1:15 a.m. Watson was struck by a 2001 GMC pickup, driven by Tina M. Seifert, 34, of Lawton, while standing behind his vehicle. The crash pushed the Cadillac into the center median and Watson remained on the roadway where he was struck a second time by another vehicle which did not stop.
Watson, a 1999 graduate of Ville Platte High, died at the scene of massive injuries. Seifert was taken to Commanche County Memorial Hospital with a head injury. She was treated and later released. Authorities are searching for the hit-and-run driver of the third vehicle.
