One Dead After Motorcycle Crash In NW OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY - A crash in northwest Oklahoma County left one man dead and sent another to the hospital. It all happened around 2:30 Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Waterloo and Council.
According to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department, a man was driving an SUV going westbound on Waterloo, turning left to go south. At the same time, a male motorcyclist was going eastbound. Neither man had a stop sign. The two collided.
“What we can surmise is that the SUV turned and possibly turned right in front of the motorcycle as the motorcycle was going eastbound,” Mark Opgrande with the sheriff’s department said.
The motorcyclist was declared dead on the scene. Deputies are working to identify the deceased rider.
The driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital but is expected to be OK.
“I guess he's doing OK,” Opgrande said. "He's in the hospital. The airbags deployed after the accident so he was taken to the hospital as a precaution."
Meanwhile investigators are determining speeds and looking at any other factors that led to this.
