2 Killed In Crash Along Interstate 244 in Tulsa
TULSA, Oklahoma - Two drivers are dead after a crash Monday morning on Interstate 244 near Memorial in Tulsa.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Ricky Shrum and Jacob Clovis - both of Tulsa - were killed.
OHP told us at the scene of the wreck that one of the drivers was heading westbound around 2 a.m, when a car going the wrong way crashed into him head-on.
A collision report released by OHP does not confirm that the crash was caused by a wrong-way driver but says the cause of the collision is under investigation.
It does state that Jacob Clovis, 38, was wearing a seat belt, while 30-year-old Ricky Shrum was not. Troopers are also investigating Jacob Clovis' condition before the crash, according to OHP.
Clovis was driving a 2005 Audi TT, and Shrum was in a 2000 Buick Le Sabre.
Both victims were pinned in their vehicles for about two hours and freed by Tulsa firefighters. Troopers initially said one of the drivers was female, but that information was corrected in the fatality collision report.
The westbound lanes were closed for almost three hours as the wreck was investigated and cleared. Traffic was allowed to get by on the shoulder.
