Police are investigating a deadly crash Saturday night in Tulsa, Okla., involving a Corvette and a Honda motorcycle.
Authorities say 37-year-old Gabriel Stone was killed after his motorcycle was struck from behind by a black C5 Corvette convertible driven by Timothy Harris, 56.
After hitting the motorcycle, Harris’s car then ran into a utility pole, totaling the Corvette and sending him to the hospital where he is in stable but critical condition.
Police said Stone was pronounced dead at the scene. They said he was not wearing a motorcycle helmet and that his cycle was totaled by the collision.
“At this time it is not known if alcohol or speed contributed to this collision,” police records state. “Any future charges relating to this collision will not be filed until a significant amount of follow-up investigation is completed.”
The accident happened about 8:30 p.m. Saturday as Stone was headed southbound on North Memorial Drive near East Newton Place when his Cobra was rear-ended by the Corvette, with the crash closing North Memorial in both directions for approximately six hours.
