A woman heavily damaged her car after slamming into a forklift carrying steel pipe. It happened about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday in an industrial area between Mingo and Garnett.

Tulsa Police say the forklift was transporting the pipe across the street and the woman didn't see the forklift and crashed into it. She was not hurt in the accident.

About 30 minutes later, another woman driving in a Broken Arrow industrial area near 81st and Lynn Lane was involved in a similar accident.

Police say a semi-truck pulled out in front of the woman and she ended up hitting the big rig's fuel tank.

She was not hurt, but her car and the truck's fuel tank were damaged.
