ME: Blood alcohol of wrong-way driver over twice legal limit

BISON, Okla. — State medical examiner’s office reports show two Oklahoma City residents who died in a two-vehicle collision last year south of Bison had blood alcohol levels of more than twice the legal limit.

The other driver, Antonio Medina Jr. 23, of Enid, also was killed.

Nikisha Lynn Farris, 34, was driving a 2013 Hyundai Accent north in a southbound lane on U.S. 81, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report. Her passenger was 57-year-old William Othel Maddox.

Medina was traveling south in the same lane when the two vehicles collided head on at about 8:17 p.m. Nov. 29, 2013, six-tenths of a mile south of Bison.

All three were trapped in their vehicles for an unknown period of time before being extricated by Hennessey and Waukomis fire departments, according to the report. Farris’ vehicle caught fire following the collision, delaying the identification.

Farris and Maddox were taken from the scene to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Oklahoma City. Medina was transferred to Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.

Investigators are not sure if Farris and Maddox were wearing their seatbelts, according to the report. Medina was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the collision.

Medical Examiner reports for Farris and Maddox show both had high blood alcohol concentrations.

Tests for Farris show she had a 0.18 percent ethyl alcohol concentration. Tests for Maddox indicated he had an ethyl alcohol concentration of 0.44 percent. No other tests were performed.

It is against state law to drive with an ethyl alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or more.

Probable cause of death for both Farris and Maddox are listed as multiple blunt force injuries. Their bodies experienced thermal charring.
