BIXBY, Oklahoma -

A road rage incident ended with three people being pulled from a burning vehicle in Bixby Friday afternoon.

Troopers said it started around 181st and Memorial Drive some time after 3:30 p.m.

A dispute started between the drivers of a dark colored pickup truck and a white pickup truck. The driver of the white pickup had a female adult and a 5-year-old boy as passengers. The driver of the dark colored truck had a pregnant woman as a passenger.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said, for some reason, the driver of the dark truck threw up his arm at the other driver, which prompted the driver of the white truck to exit his vehicle and start pounding his fists on the dark truck.

The dark truck took off, which started a chase that involved the driver of the white truck getting out again during a stop, this time armed with a crowbar or something similar, before the chase picked up once again.

As they approached Harvard, the OHP said, the white truck rear ended the other truck, then rolled over into a ditch where it caught fire.

The driver of the dark truck left the scene and eventually returned, telling troopers that he left because he was in fear for his life.

A passerby pulled the driver and the child from the burning white truck, OHP said, and the driver pulled out the female passenger. All three were transported to a Tulsa hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The OHP said both drivers could face charges for their roles in the incident.
