39-year-old Andrea Strickland had a car accident on Bell Road early March 30th. Detectives went to the location and observed Brady Stelloh giving Strickland a sternum rub to help her breathe. Officers tried to wake her up, but she kept drifting in and out of sleep. When medics arrived, they placed her in the ambulance, where she had briefly awoken. Detectives tried to question her about the collision, but she couldn’t stay awake. The officers spoke to the other driver, Essam Girgis, who provided footage of the incident, showing Strickland turning onto Bell Road and suddenly stopping and hitting his vehicle, which caused him to hit the car in front of him. Officers returned to Southern Hills Hospital to speak with Strickland and the nurses. The nurses told them that she said she had smoked some marijuana from a new dealer before driving. Strickland then admitted that to officers, adding that she did not remember the crash. Strickland was taken into custody for driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
