Accident Kills One on I-35

2-27-06 - A bizarre accident occurred Sunday night on Interstate 35 killing one person.

30-year old Jose Castillo and 21-year old Christopher Mejia were standing on the side of the interstate when a semi truck struck them at mile marker 39 on the northern edge of Ardmore. Castillo and Mejia were trying to strap a car onto a dolly to tow it when the semi ran off the road and slammed into them.

Mejia was trapped in between the car and was flown to a Norman hospital. Castillo died at the scene. Troopers are not sure how the drive lost control.
