Aubrey McClendon, 56, Ex-Chief of Chesapeake Energy, Dies in Crash a Day After Indictment
HOUSTON — Aubrey McClendon, the swashbuckling energy industry innovator who pioneered the nation’s shale revolution, died in a car crash on Wednesday, a day after he was indicted on federal bid-rigging charges of conspiring to suppress prices paid for oil and natural gas leases. He was 56.
The Oklahoma City police said the car Mr. McClendon was driving hit the wall of a bridge at high speed in a remote part of the city. He was to appear in court later in the day.
“He pretty much drove straight into the wall,” Capt. Paco Balderrama of the Oklahoma City police said. Captain Balderrama added that the crash occurred while Mr. McClendon was driving a 2013 Chevy Tahoe at a “high rate of speed.” The car was found engulfed in flames.
The indictment served by the Justice Department late Tuesday accused Mr. McClendon of orchestrating a conspiracy in which two unnamed companies colluded not to bid against each other for the purchase of several oil and gas leases in northwest Oklahoma between late 2007 and early 2012.
