Running a red light leads to a downtown Tulsa traffic accident

Updated:
Two drivers were lucky to walk away without serious injuries after a rollover accident in downtown Tulsa Tuesday afternoon.

Tulsa Police say the woman in the silver car ran a red light at 7th and Detroit and T-boned the black SUV, causing it to flip over.

Officers say red light runners are a chronic problem downtown. Tulsa Police Cpl. David Crow: "I've directed my officers to pay special attention downtown. Not because we have quotas we have to meet, but because red light violations end up may times like the accident behind us. This is one of the worst ones we've had in a while."

Corporal Crow says 90-percent of the accidents that happen downtown are caused by red or yellow light runners.

The driver of the car that caused the accident got a $165 ticket.
