State Police

The Arkansas State Police says that an Oklahoma man has surrendered and been charged with three counts of vehicular homicide in connection with a fatal wreck on Interstate 40 on May 12.

29-year-old Ivan Santos of Norman, Okla., surrendered to authorities Friday based on an Arkansas criminal arrest warrant filed in connection with a deadly highway crash on I-40 in Crawford County.

Santos has been charged with three counts of negligent vehicular homicide while intoxicated, four counts of attempted negligent vehicular homicide while intoxicated, battery (second degree) and driving while intoxicated.


State Police say the charges stem from an investigation into a vehicle crash on I-40 on May 12. State Police say that Santos was the driver of a pick-up truck traveling east in the westbound lanes of traffic when he hit six motorcycles, leaving three people dead and six injured.

The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department in Norman is holding Santos pending his return to Arkansas for an initial court appearance.
