Shawn Edwin Pugh

A fatal wreck on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike on Tuesday has left investigators with questions. 

Shawn Pugh, 37, of Virginia was taken into custody following the collision when authorities discovered he was a fugitive, according to a Facebook post from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP). 

Traffic Homicide Investigators are wanting to interview anyone who may have information about the wreck. Investigators are trying to determine who was driving the vehicle at the time of impact, the post said. 

Those who may have information related to the case are asked to call OHP Troop G in Lawton at 580-353-0783.

According to OHP, statements made by Pugh are inconsistent with physical evidence. 

OHP's initial report following the wreck said Pugh's vehicle entered the same lane as a semi-truck on Tuesday. Passenger, Ashley Pugh, 29, of Virginia, died from massive injuries sustained in the collision. She was partially ejected from the vehicle.
