A traffic accident on the Creek Turnpike Wednesday morning in Jenks. Officers say the driver was traveling eastbound when she apparently swerved, went airborne, then rolled across the west lanes and down into an embankment.

Two children inside the car suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital as a precaution. The driver wasn't hurt.

Meanwhile, a multi-car accident on a Tulsa highway sent three people to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Tulsa Police say the driver of a Honda was traveling westbound on the Broken Arrow Expressway at a high rate of speed. He failed to slow down for several cars trying to merge onto the highway, causing a change reaction accident.

The driver of the Honda had to be cut out of his car with the Jaws of Life. He went to the hospital, as did two others.

All injuries were minor.
