A Tulsa woman has been charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an injury accident after allegedly striking a motorcyclist who then had to have his leg amputated.
Tulsa County District Court filings assert that Amy Dawn Stanley, 36, was driving a 1998 Ford F150 that struck Kenny Lafayette’s 1994 Kawasaki motorcycle just east of Lewis Avenue on Pine Street.
Prosecutors say Stanley, whose last name appears as Bratton in some records, was drunk Aug. 29 at the time of the crash and fled the scene. She was arrested early the next morning.
Lafayette suffered internal injuries, rib fractures and required a leg amputation, records show.
Stanley is also charged with three traffic-related misdemeanors, including driving under suspension.
She remains at the Tulsa Jail where she is being held without bond for failure to pay in an Osage County felony case from 2006.
Stanley pleaded guilty in that case to an amended charge of reckless endangerment of a child after she was originally charged with forcible sodomy. She served 10 months in prison and was on probation until May 2011.
Stanley was convicted of DUI in Tulsa County in 2003. She served 10 months in that case after a deferred sentence was revoked.
Amy Stanley, who is also known as Amy Bratton, is charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an injury accident after the former conviction of a felony.
