  • A Shawnee woman who was suspected of drunken driving when she was involved in a traffic accident with a motorcycle is now formally charged in Pottawatomie County District Court.
    Wendy Michelle Lloyd, 28, is charged with driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08 more and causing great bodily injury, court records show. She also faces a misdemeanor DUI charge.
    A motorcyclist and a passenger were both injured in the accident on April 2, where Lloyd was arrested at the scene on complaints of DUI.
    Shawnee Patrol Officer Jake Duggan responded to the area near Wallace and Harrison Street for that accident, where his report notes there was a black Kia passenger car and a motorcycle with two riders on the ground.
    The male motorcyclist, later identified as Brian David Hayes, 43, of Ada, was seriously injured, the report shows, while the second rider, identified as Meisha Carter, 29, of Seminole, was lying next to the motorcycle. Shawnee firefighters and REACT EMS paramedics provided medical care at the scene and both riders were reportedly transported to St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.
    Witnesses at the scene reported that Lloyd, the driver of the Kia, was eastbound on Dewey approaching Harrison Street when she allegedly pulled out onto Harrison and struck the motorcycle on the right side.
    According to the officer’s narrative, Lloyd had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from her person. She agreed to field sobriety testing at the scene, with the officers performing several different tests on site with several observations noted. Lloyd also allegedly told officers she had a couple beers. Based on her appearance and results of those sobriety tests, she was placed under arrest.
    Lloyd was first transported to Shawnee’s hospital for blood alcohol testing and then was transported the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center and booked on a DUI complaint. She has since posted bond.
    Her next court date on the felony charge hasn’t yet been scheduled.
