East Tulsa -
Tulsa Police are investigating a late night accident that left one pedestrian in critical condition.
It all happened around 11:45, Thursday Night, at the intersection of 41st Street South and 109th East Avenue.
Tulsa Police Sergeant Chris Moudy tells KTUL.com, that a man attempting to cross 41st Street was struck by a Minivan traveling Eastbound. Moudy says that it appears drugs or alcohol did not play a role in the accident.
The victim was transported by EMSA to an area hospital where he's listed in critical condition. Sergeant Moudy says the driver of the Minivan remained at the scene of the crash and was awaiting transport to area hospital where a precautionary blood alcohol test will be performed.
Moudy says it's unclear what charges, if any, will be filed at this time. He did add that the driver was cooperating fully with police investigators.
