Man, 25, dies after crash on dark Tulsa highway

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say the lack of lighting along a
highway near downtown Tulsa was a factor in the death of a
25-year-old man.

Tulsa Police Cpl. Brandon Disney says Brandon McKinney and a woman were pushing a car that had run out of gas along U.S. Highway
75 about 11 p.m. Sunday when another vehicle hit McKinney from behind.

Disney says streetlights in the area were off and the emergency blinkers on McKinney's car were turned off. Budget cuts in Tulsa have resulted in highway lights not being turned on.

Disney says there is no indication that the driver who hit McKinney was impaired. Disney says that driver, a nurse on her way home from work, performed CPR on McKinney until paramedics arrived. McKinney died at the scene.
