MC)--A Waukomis man was charged this week with one count of first-degree manslaughter. Waukomis Police Department arrested 24 year-old Blazer Crow, who was later booked into the Garfield County Detention Facility. Waukomis authorities said the charge stems from an incident that occurred nearly one year ago at the intersection of Hayward Road and U.S. 81 in Waukomis. According to the report, Crow was driving a 2012 Ford Escape when failed to yield from a stop sign while attempting to turn north on the highway. A southbound 2007 Yamaha motorcycle operated by Darrel Conway, of Yukon, then collided with Crow’s vehicle. Conway was later transported via helicopter to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City in critical condition with head and trunk injuries where he died several days later. Enid News and Eagle report Crow was released on bond Wednesday.
