TULSA, Oklahoma -

Authorities say wet road conditions likely played a part in two overnight Tulsa wrecks.

Two young men from the Oklahoma City area were southbound on Highway 169 at the 21st Street off ramp when they wrecked at about midnight.

The driver told News On 6 he hit some water on the roadway when he started to exit the highway, lost control and hit a light pole. Tulsa police investigated that wreck.

A woman was westbound on the Gilcrease Expressway around West 51st Street at about 1:30 a.m. when her SUV hit some concrete barriers in the median.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper said water, speeding and a lack of familiarity with the road were likely causes of that rollover wreck.

No one was injured in either single-vehicle crash.
