TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police and firefighters responded to a head-on collision at the 2600 block of East 61st Street Saturday morning. The wreck was reported at about 9:20 a.m. near Southern Hills Country Club.

The 50-year-old man driving the GMC was taken to the hospital in serious condition but is expected to make it. Brazeal had minor injuries. The name of the injured man has not been released.
