Driver shooting update: TA releases statement

Two updates for Tuesday on the shooting of a truck driver last Friday at a TA facility in Oklahoma.

  • A spokeswoman for TA released this statement: “TA is aware of last week’s distressing incident involving a truck driver and a security guard at TA’s travel center on South Council Road in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. TA is cooperating fully with the Oklahoma City Police, as is the third-party security company, and we await the conclusion of (the investigation by law enforcement). Our thoughts are with the truck driver and we wish him a quick and full recovery.”
  • A spokesman for the Oklahoma City police department said there is no further information on any aspect of the shooting “at this time.” Further, there “won’t be until the DA’s office decides if they want to file charges.”
