A violent crash near 21st and Memorial ended in a hail of gunfire and at least one person was caught in the crossfire.

And thanks to surveillance video, Tulsa police have a good idea of what happened.

Tulsa police arrived at a large scene with two wrecked cars, but there were no suspects or victims to claim either.

Police said a woman was standing outside her home and was hit by a stray bullet.

She went to OSU Medical Center but is expected to be OK. 

The exclusive video we got from a neighbor shows the violent crash.

In the video, you see a white SUV and a car flying past the Colonial Park Apartments. The car hits the curb and flips over, while the SUV goes several feet into the air and goes out of sight on the camera.

About 10 seconds later, a man gets out of the car that flipped over and police say that's when the passengers of the SUV started shooting at the car.

Tulsa police don't know if that driver was injured. Police said he ran away from the scene.

"The crash which was particularly violent, I'm surprised anybody was able to get out of that car and run away just looking at it," TPD Sgt. A.P. Mackenzie said.

Video from the scene shows just how bad both the car and SUV were damaged. There were broken glass and debris scattered.

A K-9 also was used in the investigation to help track down the suspects or victim but didn't get very far.
