The driver is expected to survive a one-car wreck that took place at about 2:20 a.m. on 81st Street just east of Harvard.

Tulsa Police say a man driving a Honda Civic was westbound on 81st when he lost control of the car. It rolled, coming to rest on its top.

The 34-year-old driver stayed in the vehicle talking on his phone until Tulsa firefighters arrived on scene.

He had a head injury and was taken to the hospital by EMSA in fair condition. Tulsa police believe alcohol may have been involved in the crash.

In another rollover crash, a 32-year-old woman was driving westbound on Interstate 44 at about 3:27 a.m. She lost control of her vehicle after taking the exit to Highway 75, and the car rolled.

She was taken to the hospital in serious condition, according to EMSA. Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers at the scene said she appeared to be intoxicated.
