Oklahoma County prosecutors have charged 24-year-old Eric Bowman with second-degree murder in a crash that killed a woman and her soon-to-be son-in-law.

Oklahoma City police arrested Bowman on August 18. Police said he was intoxicated and driving around 100 mph when he slammed into a car near N.W. 10th Street and County Line Road.

Joshua Aaron Wright, 35, had just pulled out of a driveway when Bowman's car hit his vehicle. Both he and his passenger, 42-year-old Tammy Long, were killed. Wright was engaged to Long's daughter.

Police said Bowman ran from his car after the crash. He was arrested a short time later.

Prosecutors said Bowman had his driver's license revoked in Colorado for a DUI in 2008. They've now charged him with two counts of second-degree murder, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, causing an accident while driving under the influence, and driving under a revoked license.
