🚧 Tragic Weekend on Tulsa Streets 🚧

Published: 05/17/2021, 10:52 PM

(TULSA, Okla.) On Saturday, we had three separate collisions that killed four people and critically injured others. 

Apache and Yale:

At around 2 am, an 18 year-old male was driving a Charger at a high rate of speed southbound on Yale approaching Apache, evidence suggests that he was drag racing with another vehicle.

The Cherokee was turning left from Eastbound Apache to Northbound on Yale. The Charger struck the Cherokee, the female driver and passenger were ejected from the vehicle. The driver died at the scene and the passenger is in critical condition.

The driver of the Charger had non-life threatening injuries and was treated at a local hospital. 

Initial investigations indicate that the Charger may have gone through the red light when it struck the Cherokee. This is still under investigation and we will have more to follow when we have the results of a search warrant.

1300 N. Nogales:

At 8:30 pm, a car was driving at a very high speed just south of Pine on Nogales. As the 25 year-old was driving, two 13 year-old girls were crossing the street. 

The driver swerved his car, striking both of the girls. Tragically, one of the 13 year-olds was killed and the other sustained non-life threatening injuries.

The driver continued down the road and crashed into a tree where he was killed from the impact.

This is still under investigation.

Highway 11:

A vehicle left the roadway and rolled over eventually hitting a tree. The driver was the only occupant and was killed as a result of the impact. 

This is still under investigation.

PLEASE, drive carefully and be aware of those who are not. At least two of these incidents were completely avoidable and these young people would still be with us today. 

If you need to prove how fast you can drive, don't be stupid and try to do it on city streets. Go to the race track and show off there.
