If there's a better example of the bad results of tail-gating, I don't want to think about it. I can't be the only one that's been "Nascar-ed" on the BA or I44. Frankly, and my old beater truck would be perfect for it, I'm seriously thinking of seeing how far into the bed I can load the next moron that rides my tail!!

Whats up with all this Nascar talk? A multi-vehicle collission does not equal Nascar or anything else other than what it is - a wreck, an accident, a multi vehicle collission......

Two illegals in the pickup probably and probably dui. Should be easy for the police or Channel 6 to run a registration.

The two in the pick up didn't want to be around!! How about maybe they were drunk or high on drugs!!!!

Been there, done that. Those 1/4" thick steel bumpers are sweet! They don't dent at all when coming face to face with a plastic/aluminum grill.

Sorry, I left out the word 'seriously' hurt. I'm sure the two that ran from the scene are ok.

I just wonder how many drivers out of the eight cars were DUI?? Wonder if they gave them tests at the scene? And there is no doubt the driver of the truck that started it all was drunk or illegal or why else would he/she run??? I realize there is a lot of people that are driving to and from work and vacay people just driving thru Tulsa but the majority that are out at 12:30am are partying!

Hmm - let's see...people tailgating = people that think they are NASCAR drivers? See the correlation now?

I doubt they will, Tom. This is a perfect example of people not driving defensively. As my Driver Ed. teacher said on the first day of class, "Always expect the unexpected."

This is what happens to those who don't look beyond the end of the hood on their car. There's no reason to drive too fast to slow down or stop in time, especially on a straight multi-lane highway. Get the BIG picture, people! This could have been avoided.

There are no lights on freeways. The roads are horrible. People can not drive. People have no values and are so ignorant. No wonder this state is in such a pathetic mess. You have little midget Bartlett who has no idea how to run Tulsa. He has put Tulsa in a worst position than ever.

<p>Mayor Taylor turned the lights off. I don't recall Bartlett being in the car when I learned how to drive. I do recall simple grammar, though. Perhaps you need a refresher.
