A rush hour accident snarls Thursday afternoon traffic in Tulsa. The driver of an auto-hauler lost control of his rig Thursday afternoon and swerved off US Highway 169 near 51st Street.

The truck ran down the embankment, crossed a ditch and slammed into a concrete barrier in a parking lot. The truck hit several cars in the lot, but no one there was hurt.

Tulsa Police say one of the vehicles on his trailer broke loose and hit the cab, which killed the driver.
