Medical generic

OKLAHOMA  – An overnight rollover accident sends three people to the hospital after all three were ejected from the vehicle.

Crews responded just after 2:30 a.m. on eastbound I-40 near Luther Rd.

Officials say the car crashed into a concrete culvert which sent the car rolling five times.

One of the passengers was found 50 feet from the accident, according to authorities.

Police say none of the passengers were wearing their seat-belts at the time of the accident.

Now two of the victims are suffering from life threatening injuries.

Police are looking into whether alcohol played a role.

The accident closed down eastbound lanes of I-40 for nearly an hour.
