Tulsa, OK – South-bound Highway-169 has now reopened after a traffic accident on the bridge caused a 20-pound piece of concrete to fall from the bridge. It slammed into the windshield of a late model SUV. The driver was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
The expressway, south-bound, was closed, as well as the bridge deck, while the Oklahoma Department of Transportation made repairs. The repair work took about two hours.
