Tulsa Police say three people are in the hospital after a rollover crash around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday near 3rd and Trenton. Police say the car was driving at speeds around 60 miles per hour, double the speed limit.

Police say one of the passengers was pinned underneath the vehicle. He suffered leg injuries but was conscious. His injuries are not life-threatening, according to authorities at the scene.

The car was headed west on 3rd Street when it went off the road, flipped on its side and smashed into a concrete wall on the north side of the street. Officers say the car had to be stabilized before they could pull the pinned passenger out.

Two other people in the vehicle had minor injuries.

The car ended up only inches from a gas line, so police had to bring in another wrecker to lift it straight up.

That way, they could avoid the line.
