BRISTOW, Okla. (KFOR) – Officials say tiredness may have led to a deadly crash in Creek County.
Around 6:50 a.m. on March 8, emergency crews were called to a crash along eastbound I-44, west of Bristow.
Investigators say 47-year-old Adan Quinones-Acosta was driving a 2020 Chevy Silverado pickup truck when he likely fell asleep behind the wheel.
As a result, the truck hit the barrier wall and then hit the front of a semi-truck heading in the same direction. The pickup truck rolled and came to rest on the driver’s side.
Officials say Quinones-Acosta was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Three other passengers in the truck were not injured, while one additional passenger was admitted to a hospital in good condition.
