The search continues for as many as four people involved in a traffic accident on U.S. Highway 169 overnight.

Tulsa Police say a woman in a car was hit from behind while trying to get on the highway at 41st Street.  The force of the impact knocked her car into a northbound pickup truck.  The woman drove off, but police found her a short time later. 

Everyone in the car that hit the woman ran off and they have not been found.  Police believe several of them have outstanding warrants. 

The driver of the pickup truck was not hurt.

The driver wasn't seriously hurt.

Tulsa Police believe the man had been drinking.
