A woman was killed and a man is in jail after a crash on northbound Highway 169 Thursday afternoon.

Twenty-five-year-old George Carr, who police say was driving with a suspended Nevada driver's license, is being held in the Tulsa County jail, accused of second degree manslaughter.

The exits onto I-244 were closed in both directions while EMSA, Tulsa Police, and firefighters were on the scene.

Just one vehicle was involved in the crash just before 4:30 p.m.

Tulsa Police say the driver of the car, George Carr, was attempting to exit onto westbound I-244 from 169 when the crash happened. Based on witness statements, police say he was exiting when he noticed a motorcycle in the lane.

Police say Carr abruptly swerved and overcorrected, causing the car to hit a barrier and roll.

A female passenger was thrown from the car and was then run over. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

Joe Phillips, from Coffeyville, told News On 6 he saw the crash happen and immediately pulled his truck over to help. Phillips said the driver told him he had unbuckled the woman's seatbelt and leaned over to give her a kiss before the crash.

Police have not yet released the identity of the woman who died.

Carr is being held in lieu of $25,500 bond.
