A man is fighting for his life after crashing his speeding car into a beer truck at 71st and South Yale. A witness told police that the driver of the car was speeding westbound on 71st before he hit the truck that was turning northbound onto Yale. Tulsa Police Corporal Ross Williams tells us, "The driver of the car had to be cut out, or extricated by the fire department and was transported to St. Francis (Hospital) in very serious condition. The last known update is he is currently in surgery." We're told that the driver of the car may have been drinking before the collision happened about 11 p.m. Wednesday. "The car was travelling westbound on 71st Street. The semi was travelling eastbound on 71st Street at Yale and was turning left." Williams tells us that police cars had 71st Street shut down, but "a car actually drove around the police cars and headed in to the actual scene of the collision, but was stopped by more officers that were actually right in the intersection." The driver of that vehicle was stopped by police. Officers arranged for the driver's car to be towed away because the driver had no insurance. The driver of the beer truck was not injured in the crash.
