A Tulsa man has been charged in connection with a wrong-way collision on U.S. 75 that killed an Okmulgee man.

Robert Wayne Hutson, 62, is charged with first-degree manslaughter and driving under the influence on allegations that he caused a collision while driving on the wrong side of U.S. 75, killing Harrison Brace Jr., 83, of Okmulgee.

Hutson was driving north in the southbound lanes of U.S. 75 near the Interstate 244 junction in Tulsa about 1:30 a.m. Aug. 28 when his vehicle struck Brace’s southbound vehicle head on, according to a court affidavit.

Brace died at the scene.

Hutson was taken to a Tulsa hospital in critical condition.

After a blood analysis, Hutson’s blood-alcohol content was determined to be 0.18, according to the affidavit. The legal blood-alcohol content limit to drive in Oklahoma is 0.08.
