TULSA, OK -- Two accidents on the Creek Turnpike just minutes apart and in the same location send three people to a Tulsa hospital overnight.   

At around midnight, a car heading east on the Creek Turnpike at the Yale exit went off the road. 

The car hit a large electrical box and came to rest in the westbound lanes of the Creek Turnpike. 

The driver was transported to the hospital.  

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says alcohol may have been involved. 

A few minutes later, OHP troopers say another driver on the way to a Tulsa hospital, to see her daughter have a baby hit that electrical box which was in the middle of the highway. 

Her SUV crossed the westbound lanes and came to rest in the grass. 

The woman and her son got a ride to a Tulsa hospital in an EMSA ambulance.
