Tulsa Police are looking for two people who ran from the scene of a traffic accident overnight that left one person hospitalized. 

The accident happened at 31st Street and U.S. Highway 169 where a pickup truck trying to get on the highway was struck by an SUV.  Police say the driver of the SUV ran a red light. 

Police officers say it was occupied by a Hispanic man and woman.  Both ran from the accident scene. 

The force of the crash caused the pickup to flip on its top.  A passenger in the pickup truck was taken to a Tulsa hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

And three Arkansas college students on their way to Spring break are okay after a wreck overnight in downtown Tulsa. 

The accident happened about 1:30 a.m. Friday on the Inner Dispersal Loop. 

Tulsa Police say the driver of an SUV was confused on where to go as he tried to get on the Sand Springs Expressway when the vehicle ran off the road and lost control.  The SUV slid before coming to a rest on its side. 

All three students suffered minor injuries. 

The driver of the SUV was ticketed for inattentive driving.
