TULSA -- A TPD officer says it appears all the people transported to the hospital after being involved in a crash on L.L. Tisdale Parkway at the Gilcrease Expressway are expected to live.

Crews responded to a crash near downtown Tulsa at about 4:30 p.m. on Monday a TPD spokesperson said an 11-year-old child was ejected in the accident, not a 7-year-old as originally was reported.

Two people originally were transported by EMSA as emergent with life-threatening injuries after the crash, but an officer said those injuries were later upgraded to non-life-threatening. 

Two additional people were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Police said the wreck is still under investigation. One man in the back seat of the truck fled the scene and was detained by bystanders after he ran down the street, TPD said. They further stated that meth and scales were found on the man after police searched him. The man was transported to a hospital for treatment and it was unclear whether he would be arrested or given a citation.

Two wreckers were called to the scene to tow the vehicles away.
