TULSA - A woman was killed and a man is in serious condition after a motorcycle accident in west Tulsa Saturday night.

Just after 7 p.m. police and fire were called to West 23rd St. and South Jackson Ave. after the man and woman were thrown from their motorcycle. Their names and ages have not been released.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the man was transported to St. John Medical Center, EMSA spokesman Chris Stevens said.
