It is smooth sailing on the Broken Arrow expressway in Tulsa, after a big traffic tie up Monday morning, backed up cars for miles.

The accident happened near the Harvard exit. Officers say the driver of the pick-up didn't see the car when he tried to change lanes, causing the crash. Tulsa Police officer Paul Downe, “The red Ford then hit the bridge abutment, causing her to have a flat tire. The red, the white ford ranger then went up the side of the vehicle flipped over two or three times and came to rest in the center lane.”

The backed-up traffic caused problems for emergency crews trying to get to the scene. Both drivers did suffer minor injuries, but nothing life threatening.
