A Tulsa man was arrested on allegations he intentionally slammed his vehicle into another vehicle and causing a crash late Friday on U.S 75.
Elrico Ackerson, 34, was booked into the Tulsa Jail Saturday on assault with a dangerous weapon and hit-and run with injury complaints, an arrest report shows.
The victim told police that Ackerson's white Dodge Magnum rammed into her vehicle several times while traveling south on U.S. 75 at 9:26 p.m. Friday, the report said.
The victim alleged Ackerson hit her vehicle "intentionally from behind very hard 6 to 7 times" before attempting to switch lanes, police said.
Ackerson is accused of continuing to pursue the victim, ramming the vehicle again, causing it to veer off the road and flip several times, police said.
Witnesses at the scene identified Ackerson's vehicle, and one of them found it on the side of the road with heavy front end damage, police said.
Police found four people believed to be passengers in the vehicle walking along the highway, the report said.
According to the report, police found four people believed to be passengers in the vehicle walking along the highway. They allegedly told police that Ackerson was high on formaldehyde and that “he began acting crazy and was driving all over the road.”
Ackerson was arrested a short time later at an apartment in the 700 block of South 101st East Avenue, after receiving information of his possible whereabouts, police said.
He is in the Tulsa Jail on $20,000 bond.
