What started as a routine traffic stop turned into what one Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper calls a frightful scene.

Troopers say they stopped a man on I-44 for possible drunk driving. That's when another driver lost control and hit one trooper's car, ramming it into another trooper’s car. Troopers say the woman then backed up and drove straight at the troopers who shot at her, but missed.

The woman then took off, ran off the road and hit a tree. Her injuries are not serious. The troopers and the driver of the truck were not hurt.
