On Friday, March 1st. 2013 at 12:10 p.m., the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office responded to several 9-1-1 calls from citizens in the San Tan Valley area about a pickup flipping several times near the intersection of Skyline and Tombstone Roads.
Deputies arrived on scene and found a white 2004 Chevy extended cab pickup, upright with significant roof damage. The passenger, Carlos Santillana, 45 years old, had been ejected from the pickup as it rolled and was being tended to by several witnesses for significant injuries he had sustained.
The pickup’s driver, Glenn Allen Oglesby, 55 years old, of Chandler, showed obvious signs of alcohol and drug impairment. He was very insistent that the deputies allow him to take his personal bag from the wreckage as they tried to remove him from the accident scene. Deputies opened the bag and retrieved a bottle of brandy and were also able to locate a drug pipe outside the driver’s door in the accident debris.
Roadway evidence and witness statements, determined the vehicle Oglesby was driving was traveling west on Skyline road where he cut off several oncoming drivers. He then proceeded south onto a dirt road paralleling a farm field where he traveled for a short distance before erratically over-correcting as he tried to return to the asphalt thus losing control at the embankment where his truck began rolling several times.
Santillana was airlifted to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn where he remains in ICU with life threatening head injuries. Oglesby was treated by medical personnel for facial injuries.
Due to the driver’s alcohol and drug impairment and the life threatening injuries sustained to the passenger, blood was collected from Oglesby. The collision remains under investigation and criminal charges are pending against Oglesby.
