No Record of Charges Filed Against Driver in December Dumpster Crash
As of January 24 the Oklahoma State Courts Network (OSCN) website shows no charges have been filed against a man that crashed into a dumpster in Edmond on December 29, reportedly injuring a University of Central Oklahoma student.
The driver of the car was attempting suicide after an argument with his lover, according to Edmond Police Public Information Specialist Emily Ward.
Ward said Jahuan Long admitted to “getting into his car, closing his eyes and punching the gas pedal as hard as he could to crash into the dumpsters in a suicide attempt.”
Long’s vehicle collided with another car before hitting the dumpster, Ward said.
According to Ward, a female was throwing away trash when Long struck the dumpsters. Ward said the female was knocked “approximately 80 feet into the tree line.”
Ward said the victim told officers she was a UCO student, and was taken to the OU Trauma center where she was released the next day “with a lot of scrapes and bruises and a fractured hand.”
Long was arrested for Reckless Driving, was medically cleared for transport, and Oklahoma County was notified of his suicide attempt, Ward said.
