Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
PONTOTOC COUNTY, OK -- A reconstruction expert will help investigate a motorcycle crash that killed an Ada High School student last week.
18- year-old Cody Johnson was pronounced dead after he crashed along SH 3 Wednesday night.
OHP Captain Ronnie Hampton says after reviewing surveillance and conducting nearly 25 interviews troopers no longer believe Johnson struck another vehicle or an animal in the roadway. They originally thought Johnson may have hit a stock trailer being pulled by a pickup.
Hampton says they expect to complete the investigation in the next few weeks.
