Man Accused Of Speeding Through Red Light In Stolen Car, Causing Double-Fatality Crash In OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY - A metro man is facing two complaints of second-degree murder following a fatal collision.
Marvin Ellis-Reed, 22, crashed into a couple's vehicle Friday, November 1 near Northwest 63rd and May Avenue in Oklahoma City.
Police arrested Ellis-Reed at the scene on a complaint of second-degree murder, causing an accident (resulting in death) without a valid driver's license and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Court records show he had no business getting behind the wheel.
Jim Gardner and Bob Mills SkyNews 9 was over the scene as investigators worked to piece together the cause of a violent crash.
At the center of the four-vehicle collision was a stolen dark blue Charger.
According to court documents, Ellis-Reed was southbound on North May approaching NW 63rd, when he ignored the red light.
Traveling double the posted speed limit at 80 miles per hour, Ellis-Reed's vehicle went careening into traffic, colliding into multiple cars.
Gayle Jacobs, 60, and her boyfriend Bruce Smith, 57, were inside a silver vehicle, when Ellis-Reed hit them. The impact sent their car several hundred yards down the road.
Jacobs was pronounced dead at the scene, while Smith died within the hour at a local hospital.
Police later learned Ellis-Reed had a suspended license and had stolen the vehicle just minutes before the crash.
