A police investigation into a potential road rage incident is underway after a woman's vehicle was sent over a bridge in Tulsa on Monday, authorities say.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol told News On 6 that the driver, 20-year-old Tikeara McCall, was forced off the I-44 bridge and landed in the Arkansas River. The Tulsa Police Department is handling the investigation, OHP said.

McCall is in the hospital with several injuries that are non-life-threatening, OHP said. Firefighters at the scene estimated the drop to be as much as 60 feet from the interstate to the river.

“Whenever we arrived on scene, we got our medical bags and walked toward the car,” said Capt. Brandon Wright, Tulsa Fire. “The car was actually upside down.”

The woman who went over the bridge was recovered by first responders and taken to a hospital. Her condition and identity have not been released.

It happened in the westbound lanes of I-44 over the Arkansas River at Peoria, authorities said.

Wright said McCall got out of the car and started walking towards the firefighters. Tulsa Fire also sent a rescue boat, but crews did not have to use it because there was little to no water in the river.

“There’s a lot of rebar and busted up concrete and just big rocks,” said Wright. “It’s kind of awkward terrain to be walking in.”
