I wasn't there, so I don't want to armchair quarterback what another pilot did in the heat of the moment. But, if you flip the map over to satellite view, it looks like there were some fields right next to the highway that he put it down on.

Yeah, he was very close to KTUL (Tulsa International). About a mile or 2 NW. He was comming from the north, and landed north of the airport. If he aimed for the airport and fell short, he would have landed in a very heavily wooded area, or the zoo. Don't know what I would've done in that situation, but what he did worked for him.
