2 transported to hospital after high-speed crash flips over truck

OKLAHOMA CITY - Two people have been transported to a hospital after a crash in southwest Oklahoma City.

The crash was reported Sunday morning on S.W. 119th, just outside of New Heights Baptist Church.

A man in a truck and a woman in an SUV were both traveling westbound, when the truck reportedly struck the SUV at a high rate of speed from behind.

They were in the left lane, and the SUV was turning into the church parking lot.

The impact sent the SUV into another truck headed eastbound.

That truck flipped, but the driver denied transportation to the hospital.

The drivers of the SUV and other truck were both taken to the hospital with no life-threatening injuries.

“The gray pickup was going about 70 and hit the black SUV, and I had to slam on my brakes so I didn’t get in between, because there was debris and dust," said witness Justice Smith.

All factors are reportedly being officially looked into as causes for the crash.

Neighbors said speeding is an issue on the stretch of road.

Traffic was temporarily closed in both directions for some time.
