Chopper Closes Tulsa Expressway


A parade entry did not make it to today’s Tulsa Veterans Day Parade. A Vietnam-era Huey Helicopter got knocked off a transport truck on its way to the parade route.

The chopper was being transported on a flat bed when it apparently became entangled in an expressway exit sign on Highway 75 near the 1st Street, downtown exit.

The helicopter was on being taken from the Tulsa Air and Space Museum to the parade when the accident happened. South bound traffic on 75 was diverted around the crash.
