LAWTON - An intoxicated driver that struck a motorcyclist causing physical injuries has been charged with two criminal misdemeanors.
Comanche County Court documents state that Timberlee Renee Hobbs, 22, of Cyril, was charged on Nov. 18, with count one, DUI - personal injury accident and count one, transport open container of alcohol. At 11:27 p.m. on Nov. 17, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Jake Mackey stated that he was dispatched to the scene of an injury vehicle accident at Tony Creek and NE North Drive.
The driver of a 2015 Nissan Titan, identified as Timberlee Hobbs, stated to the trooper that she had pulled out in front of a motorcycle that had been traveling northbound on Tony Creek Road. The driver of the motorcycle, Coby Savoy Scott, 24, of Fletcher, was reportedly transported to Comanche County Hospital with a broken foot and ankle. According to Trooper Mackey's report, due to the severity of the breaks caused by the accident, the hospital nurse advised that Coby would need surgery on his foot and ankle.
Trooper Mackey stated in his synopsis of arrest that he noticed a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from Timberlee during the investigation of the collision. According to the report, Timberlee showed signs of "red blood shot watery eyes, slurred speech, unsteady on her feet and was very drowsy and crying." After conducting a Preliminary Breath Test (PBT), Trooper Mackey reportedly placed Timberlee under arrest for driving while under the influence. Inside her vehicle, he trooper said he also located an open container of beer.
Court documents indicate that Timberlee has since posted a $5,000 bond on the personal injury accident charge and $1,000 bond for the open container charge.
