TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa woman is dead following a single-car rollover wreck Saturday night. Troopers found the car while patrolling the area, authorities told News On 6.

Teresa Ann Benjamin was driving a 1998 Chevy S-10 pickup eastbound on Interstate 244 at 10:45 p.m. October 6 when she exited onto Yale Avenue, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Jamie Guinn.

"The accident's still under investigation, but it looks like the driver was attempting to exit off of I-244 eastbound onto Yale, made a late exit, hit the grass median, struck a sign and appeared to begin to roll, then hit the pole," Trooper Guinn told News On 6.

The pickup rolled one and 3/4s times before striking the light pole. Teresa Benjamin, 53, was pinned in the pickup for about an hour and 15 minutes, according to a collision report. She was pronounced dead at the scene from head injuries.

Passenger Linda Lou Benjamin, 59, was taken to a local hospital with internal injuries where she is stable, the report states. Another passenger, Tiawana Maria Smith, 45, was treated at the scene for neck injuries.

The condition of the driver at the time of the wreck and the cause of the accident are still under investigation.
