Woman Charged After Teen is Paralyzed in Accident

COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._

A local woman is being held responsible for paralyzing an Elgin teenager back in April after investigators said she ran a stop sign.

Friday 37-year-old Heather Glover was charged with causing an accident that resulted in great bodily injury while driving under suspension.

The accident happened in at the intersection of 4 Mile Road and Tacklebox Road near Lake Lawtonka.

Investigators said 19-year-old Carlos Dominguez was driving a silver S-U-V, that rolled several times, after Glover slammed into it after she failed to yield to a stop sign. 

The day of the accident Glover committed more than just one traffic violation when she didn't stop. Troopers found her license had already been suspended and was driving without insurance.

Debris was thrown for several yards throughout the intersection. There first responders frantically worked to free 19-year old Carlos Dominguez from his overturned vehicle.

Once freed, Dominguez realized he couldn't feel his legs and was flown by helicopter to an Oklahoma City hospital where he underwent surgery on his neck and back. Despite doctor's efforts, Dominguez was left paralyzed from the waist down.

The accident left him bound to a wheelchair. Since the accident Dominguez was able to become more mobile after volunteers from the Great Plains Ambucs went to his home near Elgin, where they built a large access ramp outside his house.

Friday Glover posted a ten thousand dollar bond and was let go. She entered a not guilty plea. If convicted she could face up to five years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
