A Bad Day for US-169 today

left the hospital at 4:00 PM

about 15 minutes north towards home at Oologah, I see a bit of dust flying and scraps on the roads skittering....

then I see a car with the rear end scrunched trying to get from far left to far right, and he stops on the berm.

no one else stops, all other traffic just keeps moving on

then a mile ahead, a small car stops, but no damage to it at all....
?? do they have a video??

4 miles south of Oologah I see about 15 cars parked on both sides of the 4 lanes all around a cross over intersection..... slow down way slow and then I see a SUV or older station wagon??? it is laying on its' left side, and there are two guys climbing up to the top of, one reaching down inside...

then a 1/2 mile later comes a OHP, then a pumper truck, then an ambo, and that is followed by yet another pumper truck.... all of our FF guys are certified paramedics... by this time, there isn't any 1st responders left in Oologah..... Talala is going to be on standby... and they are volunteer!

not a good day today, lots of folks just all jittery, and fell back, way back early on coming home.... the 1st one mile leaving the hospital just gave me a bad feeling.... I was being crowded, bad.......

Dennis Byrd was killed in your neck of the woods about a month ago.

Sounds dangerous in the part of OK.

Just don't drive into the smoke....

yes, he was killed about 4.5 miles SW of our home, on Hwy 88.
