Texan sought in traffic death in Oklahoma City

Brittany Althoff Died in traffic wreck.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol investigators identified Joshua Lamar Dockins as the driver who caused the multi-vehicle crash at Interstate 240 and Walker that killed a 16-year-old.

Dockins, 23, told the patrol he was driving a car when it rear-ended another car, according to court papers, and the impact forced the second car into the path of a van.

Two teenage girls in the back seat of the second car were ejected, trooper Mark Dlugokinski wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.

Brittany Althoff died at the scene. No one else was seriously hurt in the wreck, authorities said.

Dockins was located at a Norman hotel several hours after the crash, the affidavit states.

He admitted he had been drinking before the crash, authorities said.

A diagnostic device recovered from the car indicated he had been driving 107 mph two seconds before the crash, according to the affidavit. It showed Dockins slowed to 96 mph a second before impact.

Dockins, a Wichita Falls resident, has a prior conviction of drunken driving, the affidavit states.

He is wanted on complaints of second-degree murder, causing an accident resulting in great bodily injury and leaving the scene of an accident.
