Police say the driver involved in a crash on 71st St. westbound over the Arkansas River on Wednesday morning had died.

It happened just before 7 on Tuesday morning. Tulsa police say the driver, 66-year old Jimmie Weaver, suffered a medical problem, possibly a heart attack, that caused the crash. It is a construction area, which was already narrowed.

The driver's wife was also in the car, she grabbed the wheel and jerked it to try and get control of the car.
