A man is dead after his pickup crashed into a concrete bridge support in east Tulsa late Thursday night.
Police responded after a security guard in an apartment complex reported being nearly hit by a Ford Ranger near 45th Street and Garnett Road.
The guard called 911, telling police it was a possible drunken driver. The guard followed the pickup as it turned south onto Garnett about 10:45 p.m.
The pickup, whose driver’s name was not released Friday, accelerated to a high speed and struck a concrete bridge pillar under the Broken Arrow Expressway overpass on Garnett Road, police said.
Paramedics pronounced the driver dead at the scene.
