A close call early Wednesday for a couple of guys, when their vehicle suddenly rolls over.

It happened around one o'clock Wednesday morning on South Riverside Drive. Tulsa Police say the driver and his passenger were headed southbound when his Jeep went off the road. He overcorrected and flipped the jeep a couple of times. Police say they were lucky. Tulsa Police officer Bob Randolph, “we've seen no signs of blood, the one guy that I've seen had not a scratch on him. So obviously the combination of seat belts and a roll bar probably saved a couple of lives tonight.”

After the accident, the driver and passenger ran off into the woods. Police found one of them, the driver who was using a suspended license and police say he was intoxicated. The passenger hasn't been found.
