James Myrvang, 28, dies in single-vehicle pickup crash near East Pine Street and North Gilcrease in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Modified Date:Mon, 10/27/2014 - 12:15pm
Accident Date:Thursday, September 11, 2014
We're told someone called 911 just before midnight Friday morning saying a pickup truck had gone off of the road and struck a hill near East Pine Street and Gilcrease Museum Road. An EMSA ambulance was dispatched to the scene, but the driver did not survive the accident.
He slammed his truck into the side of a hill and then it caught fire, police say. A witness on scene was able to put the fire out before fire crews arrived.
Officers say the Ford was headed west on Pine at about midnight at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at the "T" intersection of Pine and Gilcrease Museum Road. EMSA paramedics pronounced James Myrvang dead at the scene. Police also believe alcohol played a part in the crash.
The man was alone in the vehicle, and he failed to stop at a T-interection and crashed into a rock wall. Authorities suspect drugs or alcohol and high speed are to blame for the crash.
