TULSA, OK -- An overnight traffic accident sends two people to a Tulsa hospital.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol say the accident happened in the 6500 block of West 21st Street just before 4 a.m. Tuesday.

OHP troopers say a big bird flew into the windshield of a Dodge Neon. That caused the driver to lose control, rolling the car on its side.

The car's passenger was able to climb out of the vehicle, but firefighters had to free the driver from the wreckage.

Both were transported to the hospital. Troopers say both are expected to be okay.
