It’s not clear if OKC Thunder co-owner Aubrey McClendon lost control of his vehicle or really tried to “harm himself” amid a federal indictment — but some of the sad details from his finals moments behind the wheel of his SUV are now starting to trickle out.
McLendon “tapped the brakes” several times before his SUV crashed into a bridge … but cops say they aren’t clear if that means he WASN’T trying to kill himself.
56-year-old McClendon died in the March 2nd accident — after hitting an Oklahoma City bridge at such a high rate of speed, his SUV exploded in flames almost immediately.
In a news conference in OKC moments ago, officials say McClendon’s car was going 88 mph 5 seconds before impact … and 78 mph at the moment of the crash.
The successful oil-man was facing conspiracy charges, and looking at prison time if convicted.Powered by Sidelines
