ENID, Okla. —
The driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee involved in a rollover near Garriott and Oakwood Monday night told police her vehicle was “idling funny” prior to the collision.
Cynthia A. Voth, 40, was westbound on Garriott at about 8:45 p.m. Monday and told police she was unable to stop for the red light because her vehicle was “idling funny,” according to an Enid Police Department report.
When Voth’s vehicle ran the light it was struck by a south-facing Ford Mustang that was turning to go east on Garriott, causing Voth’s vehicle to roll and come to rest on its roof.
The driver of the Mustang, Holly N. Cutler, 21, told police she was facing south in the left-hand turn lane and her light turned green. As she went through the intersection she said Voth’s Jeep entered the intersection at a high rate of speed and she struck Voth’s vehicle.
Cutler said she doesn’t know what happened after the collision, because the vehicle’s airbags deployed, blocking her and her passenger’s view, according to the report.
Three other witnesses told police Voth, of Muenster, Texas, ran the light without slowing down.
Voth and Cutler, of Enid, were not injured in the collision, but each had a passenger that was injured. Both passengers refused medical treatment at the scene.
