Saw that on newson6.com yesterday. Must have been a hell of a ride crossing that many lanes of traffic without hitting another vehicle or person.

Really lucky.  According to the map, the coffee shop is on the SW corner of 14th & Utica.  Is the map incorrect?  I haven't been up that way recently.  I am thinking maybe the driver crossed 14th St rather than Utica after "exiting" the BA.

No kidding. If the report he crossed Utica is accurate, he would have been westbound on the BA, crossed the wrong-way into eastbound BA, then 14th and then Utica.

You can see the path he took. Crossed the eastbound lane, through the fence, through an Up With Trees sign, accross 14th (the access road), across Utica, then right into the coffee shot shipping container. Incredible how long that must have taken. That poor coffee shop seemed to already be having plubming issues with trucks there seemingly every week, and now this.

I saw this morning an Eskimo Joes sign going up on the Roosevelts building, the opposite side of the building. Also saw a sign that its a business-to-business marketing office for Eskimo Joes, with a huge sign going up this morning.

I took it that the driver was westbound on the BA before the bridge over Utica, went through the median across eastbound lanes, down the embankment, across 14th then both directions of Utica and possibly the median on Utica before hitting Cirque.

The attached Google Street View is just a guess and from 2018, but the main thing is there are no curbs, barriers, retaining walls, or anything to stop a vehicle from leaving the expressway and winding up on Utica.

Help my foggy memory, where is the Roosevelt Building?

Found the story on KJRH, and while it doesn't show the path, it does show he moved the container about four feet.

Oof... all that plumbing and other infrastructure that's going to have to be reset. That was a hell of a collision. Can't wait for autonomous cars!

The building with Roosevelt's in it?

Separate thought. It's sad to me that Cherry St... which is one of Tulsa's "premier" streets, has so much dilapidation.  The burnt down Subway has been there for almost 2 years... same with the old Long John Silvers. I can't believe those haven't been dealt with.

The Long John Silver building is for lease.  Wish someone could buy it and raze it, definitely a prime location.  I don't know what the plan for Subway is that's another prime spot next to the new apartments that have taken forever to finish, maybe they'll do something once that whole sidewalk has reopened.

Man that is a hard hit. They hit the container hard enough to sheer the bolts to the slab AND move it four feet?

Can't wait to see what redundancy requirements become standard/mandated.  Really can't have a Blue Screen of Death become literal.

Clearly he had taken the Covid vaccine which magnetized his blood and he was pulled off the highway towards the steel container used for the Cirque Coffee shop. Possibly there were also Jewish space lasers involved.

Wait - sorry - I thought this was the TulsaQNow forum...  Grin
