Valley Brook Police Chief Michael Stamp said they are still waiting on the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, but the female driver is not at fault.

Stamp said neither speed nor alcohol was a factor and that this case should alert all drivers to always be aware.

"And I know they shouldn't be playing out in the streets, but when you're in residential neighborhoods, that's a very high possibility and people need to be very vigilant," Stamp said.
