TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- Tulsa Police are still looking for the driver of a car which rolled onto its side early Monday morning on U.S. Highway 75 at 56th Street North.

Police say they got a call at about 3 a.m. about a woman walking down the highway.

Officers didn't find the woman, but an EMSA crew did find a car sitting on its side near the northbound lanes of 75.

A passenger was still in the car and fire crews had to get her out.

EMSA took her to a Tulsa hospital with what Tulsa Police say were non life-threatening injuries.

She told officers the driver, who was also a woman, had been drinking and wrecked the car while trying to light a cigarette.
