Tulsa Police were busy Tuesday night as they investigated four traffic accidents, including two crashes that killed the drivers.
Around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, a man was driving his pickup truck on Highway 412 when he drove into the center median and crashed into a support beam at 41st Street.
Police say Kenneth Brooks was ejected and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A short time later, police saw a motorcycle speeding in the downtown Tulsa area, but lost sight of it.
Then around 10:30 p.m., police were notified of an accident on North Highway 75 near the 2000 block.
When officers arrived, they found a man had been northbound at a high rate of speed in the s-curve when he lost control.
When the driver started to lay the bike down, his leg hit a light pole that had already been knocked down from a previous accident.
Part of the motorcycle came off and started a small grass fire.
But the driver and the motorcycle continued northbound on a grassy area for about 600 feet before he was ejected and came to rest at a memorial to a previous fatal motorcycle accident.
His motorcycle ended up on a fence at a metal salvage yard.
The driver died later at a hospital.
About 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, officers responded to another motorcycle accident that occurred on North Yale Avenue near Apache Street.
Officers tell us the driver apparently had been arrested recently for driving under the influence.
His was the only vehicle involved in the accident and he refused treatment by EMSA paramedics, but police continued to question him.
We're told another accident happened about 12:30 a.m. on Highway 169 near 61st Street.
Tulsa Police tell us a driver had swerved to miss a mattress that was laying in the roadway northbound.
The damaged vehicle was hauled away by a wrecker.
The occupants of the car were treated for minor injuries at the scene.
