Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The southbound lanes of 193rd East Avenue over Interstate 44 were shut down for about two hours early Monday after the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a woman arrested for DUI jumped off the bridge to the highway below.

EMSA took the woman to the hospital in critical condition.

The OHP says a trooper was taking the woman to jail when he stopped on the side of the road because she complained of being sick. 

The woman, who was handcuffed, broke away from the trooper, ran to the bridge and jumped off.

The OHP says the traffic stop happened on I-44 at 161st East Avenue at about 12:15 a.m.

The woman's name has not yet been released.
