Manslaughter charge filed in pedestrian death

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ The woman who hit and killed a man as he walked across I-44 Sunday night was charged Wednesday with first-degree manslaughter.

Misty Yeats was arrested after the accident when Lawton police discovered she was driving with a revoked license. The judge ordered her to be held on $30,000 bond. 

Investigators identified the victim as Harold Otts, 56. They believe he was homeless. Police are having a difficult time locating his next of kin, so they're asking for the public's help.  

The accident report said surveillance cameras from a nearby casino captured the wreck, which happened on the northbound side of the turnpike near the Gore Boulevard exit. The video showed Yeats hitting her brakes and swerving left to avoid Otts before the collision. She then stopped on the shoulder of the exit ramp. He was clipped by the right front of Yeats' car.
