Tulsa Fire Department including Hazmat crews were called in to clean up the spill and wreck. A Tulsa fire department captain said 50 gallons of diesel and seven gallons of motor oil have possibly leaked into the small creek

Police say the vehicle had a blowout on the left front tire, leading to the wreck near Pine and Garnett.
