The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the driver of a pickup was under the influence when he crashed on an access road next to I-44 at Union Monday evening.

Troopers said Lewis Harrison, 79, of Tulsa was headed west when he apparently lost control of his 2003 Chevy pickup, causing it to go up on a guardrail and slide 250 feet.  The truck came to rest next to a bridge support.
