Authorities are investigating two collisions that happened  in the Oklahoma City metro area early Monday morning.

According to Oklahoma City police, at about 4 a.m., emergency crews responded to the report of a crash involving a car and a pickup truck on S.W. 44th Street near S. Rockwell Avenue.

The driver of the car was pinned inside the vehicle for a few minutes before being freed. That driver has been transported to the hospital.

S.W. 44th was shut down in the area for about three hours as crews worked to clear the scene of the crash.

The cause of the collision is under investigation. Authorities have not identified anyone involved in the crash. 

Oklahoma Highway Patrol said at about midnight, three people from Choctaw were headed east on I-40 when for some reason, their vehicle veered off to the left and hit a guard rail.

After hitting the guard rail, the car flipped off the interstate and landed below on Anderson Road .

The car eventually caught on fire, but was quickly put out by fire fighters. Surprisingly, no one in the car suffered any major injuries. At least one person was taken to the hospital though for evaluation.
