A 21-year-old woman is dead after troopers say she lost control of her car at 81st Street and 33rd West Avenue about 1 a.m. on Friday.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Corie Lynn Compston, of Tulsa, went left of center, then overcorrected and went into a broad slide into a tree, splitting the Nissan Altima in half.

According to the OHP report, the woman was pinned for an hour and 38 minutes before she was freed by the Sapulpa Fire Departments' hurst tool.

A male passenger, Jackson W. Wilson, 25, of Tulsa, was wearing a seatbelt and is in the hospital with a possible broken arm.

The report says the cause of the collision and the condition of the driver are under investigation.
