TULSA, OK -- Police and Fire were busy early Friday morning responding to several serious accidents.

For the third time in the past three days, emergency crews have responded to a wreck at the intersection of U.S. Highway 75 and I-44.

This morning's crash shut down an entrance ramp.  Police say a woman was weaving in and out of traffic, when her vehicle hit a curb on the ramp and rolled over.  The car landed on its top.

The woman was taken to a Tulsa hospital.  Police officers say her injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

The driver in another overnight wreck had to be taken to a Tulsa hospital after being pinned for a time underneath his vehicle.

The accident happened just after 4 a.m. Friday near Harvard and Woodward.

Tulsa Police say the driver was going south on Harvard at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a utility pole.  Fire crews had to free him from the car.  There's no word on his condition.

And the driver of another car was seriously hurt overnight when he lost control of his vehicle at a south Tulsa apartment complex.  Police say at around 2:15 a.m., a vehicle apparently hit a rock and a tree broadside, at the Deerfield Apartments near 88th and Lewis, causing the vehicle to roll on its side.

The victim was also taken to a Tulsa hospitalized.  There is no word on his condition.

Police are still investigating what happened.
