A person was killed in a single-vehicle crash on the Sand Springs Expressway early Tuesday, Tulsa police reported.

About 1:20 a.m., officers found that an eastbound Nissan Xterra had run into the median near 41st West Avenue, striking safety barrels and a bridge pillar.

The only occupant was extricated from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

The person’s identity was not released Tuesday pending notification of next of kin.
