Tulsa police say three people are in the hospital after a rollover crash near 11th and Harvard that happened early Tuesday morning. Police told News On 6 that officers were called to the scene of the crash around 1 a.m. after they say a car traveling nearly 100 miles per hour t-boned a truck.

According to TPD, a witness at the scene told them that a silver car was driving on Harvard at 100 miles per hour when the driver t-boned the white truck on 11th street. Tulsa police say the impact caused the truck to roll over.

Police said there were two people in the truck and just a driver in the silver car, they say all three were trapped when first responders arrived on scene.

Tulsa police say all three people were alert and speaking, but were taken to the hospital for their injuries and are expected to recover.

Tulsa Police Capt. Jarrod Hart said they don't know if alcohol played a factor in this crash.

“The firemen that pulled the people out of the vehicles say they didn’t smell any alcohol,” Hart said. “EMSA took them away, there was no alcohol mentioned to us, we’ll do our investigation and do a blood draw at the hospital, see if there is any drugs or alcohol in anyone’s system.”

Police did have the area around 11th and Harvard closed while they worked the scene but it is now back open.
