Press release from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol 

 

 

Shortly after noon today (Wed., May 16), a small flatbed semi-truck pulling a flatbed trailer loaded with round concrete risers was traveling eastbound on the Turner Turnpike near Sapulpa.

 

During the trip, a concrete riser or two fell from the trailer and broke apart in the lanes of travel, resulting in one fatality.

 

People in several vehicles were alleged to have seen the riser(s) fall and/or may have had to negotiate around the broken concrete pieces.

 

The OHP Traffic Homicide Unit would like to identify and speak with these individuals.

 

Anyone who has information is asked to call 1-866-OHPTIPS, or call Troop B HQ at 918-627-3881 and ask to speak to an investigator.
