OKLAHOMA CITY -

Slick spots on Oklahoma City highways may be to blame for at least two accidents early Wednesday morning.

Just after 1 a.m., a woman hit some black ice on Interstate 235 near Reno Avenue. Her car slid off the interstate and down an embankment. She was not hurt.

Around 3:30 a.m., another car lost control on the on-ramp at I-44 and Western Avenue. The vehicle ended up on its side. Two people inside the car were taken to a hospital. Their conditions are not known.

It's not known if slick conditions were a factor in the accident.

There was also another accident in the northbound lanes of I-35 at S.E. 29th Street around 5:30 a.m. That accident has been cleared away.
