An 18-year-old man was killed in a Tulsa highway construction zone accident overnight.

The accident happened near 31st and U.S. Highway 169. 

Witnesses tell Tulsa Police the driver of a black Dodge Neon was speeding on the highway on the wrong side of the construction cones.  The vehicle slammed into the back of a highway construction warning truck that had its arrow flashing.

No construction workers were hurt in the accident.
