An off-duty Tulsa Police officer is involved in an accident in his patrol car on U.S. Highway 75 late Monday. The accident happened in Glenpool around 9:30 p.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 75 near 196th Street South.

Investigators say the police officer's patrol car collided with another vehicle headed southbound on U.S. Highway 75. Both drivers were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

"Both are not critical condition, they were up walking around, talking, just to be checked out," says Tulsa Police Captain Karen Ford.

Since Glenpool Police only had two police officers on duty at the time of the accident, Tulsa Police are investigating the accident.
