Morning Crash on the Poteau By Pass Photos submitted by Assistant Chief Greg Russell

Press release

 

On July, 11, 2018 at 6:55am, officers with the Poteau Police Department were dispatched to the Cavanal Scenic Expressway overpass that crosses the 3100 block of Witteville Drive on a call of an injury motor vehicle collision.


Investigation at the scene revealed that Erasmo Alvarado (age 21 of Shepherd, TX) was northbound in the inside northbound lane of CSE driving a black 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS.


Alvarado fell asleep, departed the roadway to the left, and travelled 216 feet northbound in the grass center median and 32 feet on concrete at the start of the Witteville Drive overpass.


The concrete transitioned to a steep embankment and Alvarado went airborne for 47 feet before striking a bridge support on the bottom of the southbound overpass bridge with the top of the vehicle.


Alvarado travelled 15 more feet airborne until the front of the vehicle collided with the roadway on Witteville Drive.


Alvarado continued 15 feet across Witteville Drive, collided with the concrete curb, and came to rest 7 feet further on the opposite side (North) concrete embankment.


Alvarado was transported by Leflore County EMS to Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center for incapacitating facial and internal trunk injuries.
