One of the more outrageous Oklahoma City car accident news stories involves a wife who says she was not “aware” of running over her husband with her pickup truck in an accident that took place on October 4, 2012. Oklahoma police responded to a hit-and-run accident at NW 23rd Street and Penn on the evening of October 4, and found Harry Robbins lying in the street with significant head trauma. Robbins was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead the following day, and police ultimately arrested his wife, 49-year-old Lisa Bradley, for the death of her husband.

CAR ACCIDENT RESULTS IN DEATH OF OKLAHOMA MAN
Upon questioning witnesses to the fatal Oklahoma City car accident, police discovered that a driver had intentionally struck and run over Robbins, and a vehicle that matched the description of a truck driven by one of two women who lived with the victim was identified as the one involved in the hit-and-run accident. A few hours after the Oklahoma accident occurred, Bradley contacted OK police and admitted to detectives that she was married to Robbins and that the two were having domestic problems. She told police that as she left their home on the evening of the accident, Robbins jumped on the hood of her pickup truck. Bradley said she accelerated and then hit the brakes to get Robbins off of her vehicle, and then drove away without checking on him after he fell off the truck.

Bradley told police that she decided to contact the authorities after seeing a story about the Oklahoma car accident on the news, and according to Bradley, she “was not aware if she ran over Robbins or not as she was leaving.” Bradley was arrested by Oklahoma police on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon and deadly use of force.
