A fiery accident on the Sand Springs Expressway overnight nearly costs a woman her life. It happened around 3 AM Friday.

Authorities say the woman was westbound toward Sand Springs when she apparently ran off the road. Her car rolled one time. A man who saw the accident ran to help. He says the woman was unconscious, and he pulled the woman from the car as it caught on fire. Brian Tuter: “had to take her seatbelt off and fire was coming in the front window at that time so I pulled her out. I would want someone to do it for me if I was on fire or she was on fire.”

The woman has not been identified. She is hospitalized, and we are told her injuries are not life threatening.

Another rollover accident, this one on the Broken Arrow Expressway at 15th Street early Friday morning sent 2 people to the hospital.

Tulsa Police say around 2:45 AM, the driver hit a curb and skidded near the 15th Street exit and rolled his car one time. It landed on its side. The two victims will be okay.
