LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –A driver was arrested Monday after he drove into the back of an 18-wheeler.

The wreck happened at 11:44 a.m. at Northwest Cache Road and Homestead. Police say the driver, 31-year-old Leonel Solis, was going at least 60 mph when he hit the back of the 18-wheeler. The truck driver told police he saw Solis give a green camo jacket to woman, who in turn took the jacket to her vehicle.

Police asked the woman about the jacket and she gave it to them. The woman, who told police she was a CAN and was only trying to help, said she did not know Solis and only took the jacket to try and calm him down.

Inside the jacket, police found a .40 caliber KHAR and a loaded magazine. Police also found Solis to be in possession of 3.6 grams of methamphetamine and two burnt marijuana cigarettes.

Solis was arrested and taken to the Lawton City Jail for reckless driving, possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of marijuana.
