TULSA, Okla. – Authorities say two teenagers were killed and three others injured after their car flipped during a police pursuit in Tulsa.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the chase began on U.S. 169 after a trooper tried to pull over a driver for an expired tag. The highway patrol says the driver lost control of the car shortly after midnight Friday and the vehicle rolled over several times.
Authorities say a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy were pronounced dead at Tulsa hospitals. A 15-year-old boy is in critical condition and a 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy are in stable condition.
Authorities are still investigating which teen was driving at the time of the crash.
The wreck caused a shutdown of U.S. 169 northbound for about five hours Friday morning.
