Police identify man who died in 5-car crash on BA Expressway
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
Police say at least one person is dead after a crash on the Broken Arrow Expressway.
The crash happened around 6:45 a.m. Monday. Police say a white car was merging onto the BA Expressway from northbound Highway 169 when a blue minivan hit it. The minivan then spun across the highway and hit a barrier.
A third vehicle, a Buick, came to a stop on the highway due to the crash, according to police. A Lincoln Navigator then smashed into the back of the Buick, likely at highway speed, police say. The Navigator was then rear-ended by a fifth vehicle.
The driver of the Buick, identified as 52-year-old Michael Goad, was pronounced dead at the scene. The four other drivers involved were all taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The westbound lanes of the highway were closed between Highway 169 and Garnett for at least two hours while authorities investigated.
