OHP looking for witnesses of deadly accident on Turner Turnpike
SAPULPA, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is looking for witnesses of a deadly accident on Turner Turnpike near Sapulpa Wednesday afternoon.
According to OHP, a small flatbed semi-truck pulling a flatbed trailer with round concrete risers on it was traveling eastbound on the Turner Turnpike near Sapulpa. One or two of the concrete risers fell off the truck at some point and broke apart on the lanes.
Troopers confirm at least one person died due to the concrete pieces in the road.
OHP said people in several vehicles were believed to have seen the risers fall and/or may have had to swerve around the broken concrete.
The OHP Traffic Homicide Unit would like to identify and talk to those witnesses.
If you have any information, please call the Traffic Homicide Unit at 1-866-OHPTIPS or Troop B Headquarters at 918-627-3881 and ask to speak with an investigator.
