TULSA, OK -- One person is seriously injured after a three car accident in Tulsa late Thursday night. 

The accident happened just after 11 p.m. near 31st Street and 129th East Avenue. 

Tulsa Police say the victim was trying to turn left. 

Officers say a broken down semi truck may have blocked the driver's view as the man turned in front of two cars headed in the opposite direction.  He was taken to a Tulsa hospital with serious injuries. 

While officers were cleaning up the wreck, a couple of fights broke out at the bar. 

Four people were arrested and taken to the Tulsa County jail on various charges, including assault with a deadly weapon. 

Also overnight, police worked a rollover accident at 71st and Sheridan. 

Tulsa Police say a driver heading southbound on Sheridan realized she ran a red light and stopped in the middle of the intersection. The driver of another vehicle headed west on 71st tried to stop but couldn't, and hit the woman's car.

A third vehicle then tried to avoid the accident, but couldn't.  That collision sent the vehicle over the hood of one car, and into the air, rolling on its side. 

No one was seriously injured.
