Posted: Updated:
A 3-year-old boy was killed early Wednesday afternoon after police say he broke free from his mother's grip and was hit by a car in a McDonald's parking lot.

Police say they were called to the McDonald's at the corner of Northwest Expressway and N. Council Rd just before 1:10 p.m. Wednesday.

According to police on scene, the boy was walking with his mother and 4-year-old brother in the parking lot. Police said she was holding the two boys' hands when the younger boy slipped out of her grip and started running. She chased after him and they were both hit by the car.

Police said the driver of the black SUV who hit the child was distracted by another car in the parking lot and did not see the family.



Bethany police say a man who caused a five car accident that resulted in the death of one person was on drugs at the time of the crash.

Police arrested Wesley Early, 28, on one count of first degree manslaughter. Police said he was driving a vehicle that collided with four other cars in the 2800 block of N. Rockwell in Bethany on Tuesday.

Officers said when they arrived, they found two cars that had caught fire. In one of those cars, emergency responders say one person was trapped as the fire burned the vehicle. That person died at the scene.

Police arrested Early and booked him into the Oklahoma County Jail for first degree manslaughter.
