OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma’s medical examiner on Thursday identified the woman found dead on a road in southeast Oklahoma last week as a mother of a newborn boy.
The Oklahoma Department of Public Health and Environment (DPHE) said the woman’s husband, Richard, was not injured in the crash, but the medical examiner said his condition has not been released.
The DPHE said it did not have the name of the woman.
The agency said it had not released the name and cause of death of the baby, who was born March 18.
Richard, 43, died Monday morning after he was struck by a pickup truck while driving to work in his Oklahoma City home.
The baby’s mother, whose name has not yet been released, was the child’s grandfather, the DPHe said.
He was listed as a “temporary” caregiver.
Richard and his wife, Patricia, had three children, according to the DphE.
He had a daughter, a son and a granddaughter, the agency said.
