Medical Episode Kills Driver And Causes Crash Near Caddo

Posted:

BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- A driver is dead after a one-vehicle crash near Caddo this weekend.  

It happened around 5 p.m. on Saturday on Highway 69/75, one mile north of Caddo.

Troopers say William Welcome, 67, of Covina, Calif., suffered some type of medical episode while driving.

He veered across the median and the opposite lanes of traffic, before going through a fence and striking a tree.

According to OHP, Weclome was pronounced dead at MCSO in Durant from the medical condition, not the crash. Welcome's Facebook profile says that he is a retired California Highway Patrol traffic officer.

Welcome's passenger, his 53-year-old brother David, of Mukwonago, Wis., was not hurt in the crash.
