I think if you'll read the front page of the mcalester news capital, last friday's edition referring to a possible drunk driver, single car accident in eufaula. It didn't give the name of the deceased, but I think that may be her. If I remember correctly, it stated the child was 5 yrs old, and her obituary was in the same paper that same day. May not be the same child, but I personally think it is.

Probe into traffic death is under way

By Doug Russell

EUFAULA — A Eufaula attorney is under scrutiny in the traffic death of a young girl, according to Police Chief Don Murray.

“We’re waiting on toxicology reports from the (Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation),” Murray said, adding that Eufaula police also asked experts from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol accident reconstruction team to investigate.“We’re hoping to have the results of their investigation by Friday.

Police believe alcohol may have played a part in the accident in the 400 block of Selman Avenue. Blood was drawn from Eufaula attorney Scott Jackson Ogle and sent to the OSBI for testing, Murray said, adding “I anticipate charges being filed in this case.”

Five-year-old Ariana “Baby” Brinkley died of injuries suffered in the July 3 accident. She had been flown by medical helicopter to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where she died early in the morning of July 4 of massive internal injuries, Murray said.

Her younger brother, 3-year-old Joshua Brinkley, suffered a broken leg in the 11:37 p.m. accident which also injured two others, according to police.

Neither child was wearing a seat belt, Murray said.

They had been in the back seat of their uncle’s car, going home after the city’s fireworks display. The uncle, Robbie Belcher, 40, was driving a 4-door Nissan west on Selman Avenue when Ogle’s eastbound Lincoln crossed the center line and slammed into his car head-on.

Both drivers were pinned in their vehicles and both were flown to Tulsa hospitals.

Ogle suffered internal injuries, while Belcher’s “Leg was messed up pretty bad,” Murray said.“He had to undergo several hours of surgery.”

Both have since been released from the hospital, he added.

A third passenger in the Nissan, Belcher’s 6-year-old son, David Long, was not seriously injured, the chief said.

Long and Belcher were both wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

Oklahoma Bar Association records indicate Ogle has been on associate status since February 2006. As such he is prohibited from actively practicing law.

Usually attorneys are put on associate status when they file statement with the bar association that for some reason they are unable to practice law, according to the OBA.

Have charges been filed against the Uncle who was driving the vehicle without the children buckled in the car/booster seats?
Don't you feel both families have suffered enough with the loss of their children. Pray for the families, turn your anger over to the Lord, he is the only one who can soften your heart and give you peace.
