An Enid man involved in a fatality traffic accident early Thursday was not charged in Garfield County District Court Friday but will face charges once a chemical toxicology test is complete, officials said.
Nicholas Dylon Patton, 20, was the driver of a 1990 Nissan Sentra involved in the death of David Allen Poslick, a 46-year-old Enid resident.
Patton turned himself in to Enid police at 1:17 a.m.; however, the accident occurred sometime between midnight and 12:43 a.m., when police responded to several calls reporting a body lying on the roadway.
Patton was booked into jail on complaints of leaving the scene of a fatality accident, failing to render aid, immediate notification of accident and obstructing an officer.
A blood sample was taken from Patton when he arrived at the station.
Assistant District Attorney Stefanie Hampton said in court Friday Patton admitted to Enid police he smoked marijuana sometime before the accident occurred.
A preliminary investigation indicated Patton and another person were taking Poslick home after he reportedly consumed alcohol, according to an Enid Police Department report. The vehicle made a wrong turn, and after a verbal altercation Poslick left the vehicle, EPD Capt. Jim Nivison said.
Poslick apparently stepped off the curb into the path of Patton's car, which had begun moving forward
Charges against Patton could be amended by Garfield County District Attorney's Office. Charges could be filed within about two weeks, once the results of the blood toxicology test are known, officials said.
