Police: Tulsa hit-and-run may be related to fatal crash

BROKEN ARROW, OK – Police believe that a hit-and-run accident that resulted in minor injuries may be related to a fatal single-vehicle accident that took place in southeast Tulsa this weekend.

This is an update to our previous reporting.

Two Bixby High School students received minor injuries Saturday night when their vehicle was hit by a red sports car that had run a red light at 101st Street and Mingo Road. Rather than stopping, the vehicle pulled a U-turn and headed west on 101st.

A few minutes later, a Chevrolet Camaro hit a tree on 101st between Sheridan and Yale Avenues. The vehicle caught fire and exploded, killing its driver, who has since been identified as 29-year-old Johnathan Garcia. Police believe Garcia may have been the driver who hit the two high school students.
