Tahlequah, Oklahoma – July 27, 2013

A Saturday evening accident on Oklahoma State Route 100 about a mile west of Oklahoma State Route 82 near Tahlequah killed a resident of Cherokee County according to state police.

Welling 35-year-old man Troy Bohlander was westbound on Oklahoma 11 and allegedly speeding at 7:28 p.m. when he failed to make a turn and struck a tree. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirmed that Mr. Bohlander was ejected from the vehicle.

Mr. Bohlander may have been drinking at the time of the accident and he was declared dead at the scene.

According to a study done by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, one in ten drivers reported having driven when they thought that their alcohol level might have been close to or possibly over the legal limit within the past 12 months, and just over half of those (5.5 percent of all drivers) reported having done this more than once within the past 12 months.
