OKLAHOMA CITY - A driver was killed after crashing into a parked vehicle on Interstate-35 near Interstate-40, Wednesday morning.
Troopers said the driver was northbound on I-35 traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control. Skid marks show he did try to stop before crashing into the concrete barrier. Troopers said the car traveled down the barrier at a 45 degree angle, before slamming into a car parked on the shoulder.
