A man died after driving the wrong way and crashing into vehicles, a March 17 article of Tulsa World reported.

The incident happened in Interstate 244 near Garnett Road, around 11:15 AM yesterday. 72-year-old Richard Lee Ross was driving his pickup truck east in the westbound lanes with a woman and a 9-month-old. This caused him to hit a Jeep head-on, spin into another lane, and smash into a semi. He was pronounced dead at the scene while the woman and the infant were transported to a hospital. She suffered minor injuries and the baby boy was only put under observation.
