Oxygen loaded truck into light pole

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._A potentially dangerous situation was averted after a truck carrying highly explosive oxygen tanks drove into a light pole at the Sheridan Rd. and Lee Blvd. intersection.

The truck driver told emergency workers he was headed west on Lee Blvd. when his brakes failed. He said he veered off the road to avoid hitting another car, and that's when the truck rolled over a curb and into the light pole.

No one was injured, none of the tanks ruptured.
