The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Tulsa man and a Owasso man were seriously injured after a one vehicle crash in Rogers County early Saturday.

Troopers believe an eastbound 2016 Hyundai Veloster was traveling at a high of speed on 106th Street North when it went off the road.

The OHP said at about 5 a.m. the car driven by James Reynolds, 26 of Tulsa left the road and rolled near the intersection of 193rd East Avenue east of Owasso.  They said the car hit a driveway culvert, went airborne, hit a second driveway, then rolled end over end landing on a third driveway.

They said initially, emergency responders had a hard time finding the crash scene because one of the victims who called 911 kept fading in and out of consciousness.

Troopers were the first to arrive and helped the Limestone Fire Department free a passenger, Nicholas Oberst, 25, of Owasso from the wrecked car.  Reynolds was found on the ground nearby.  

The OHP report says Reynolds was in serious condition and Oberst was in critical condition when they were taken to a Tulsa hospital.  Troopers also said there was the odor of alcohol in the car.
