OKLAHOMA CITY – Officials have released more information on the tragic crash on I-40 that left one man dead.

Just before 6 p.m. Monday, four vehicles crashed on I-40 near Mustang Rd. in Oklahoma City.

Officials say all four vehicles were in the eastbound lanes of I-40 at the time of the accident.

All traffic was at a stop due to a prior collision when authorities say 29-year-old William Burnside crashed his Ford F-250 into 40-year-old Richard Childs’ Chrysler 200, leading that vehicle to crash into two other vehicles.
