OKMULGEE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A Green Country woman says that another driver's road rage nearly took her life.

It happened on the Creek Turnpike in Tulsa on Thursday.

Brenda Smith says it all started when she was driving on U.S. Highway 75 on her way to physical therapy.

She says construction narrowed traffic down to one lane, and when she tried to pull into line with the other cars she was cut off by another vehicle.

She says the driver of a white or pearl SUV made an crude gesture to her, but she just let it go.

But Smith says when she took the exit for the Creek Turnpike, she noticed the SUV pulling up alongside her.

She says the female driver started swerving into her lane over and over again, eventually causing Smith to hit the concrete barrier.

She says her car ricocheted off the wall, slid across three lanes of traffic and flipped on its side.

Smith says the bumps and bruises she has and the chance of her SUV being totaled is the least of her worries right now.

"What if I had my grand babies with me? My grandkids could be the ones to never get to see me again," she said.

Smith says two other cars pulled over to make sure she was OK, but the SUV sped off.

Had she not been wearing her seatbelt, Smith says things could have been much worse.

She's is asking anyone who saw the crash, and got a license plate number, to call authorities.
