TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett has helped a driver get out of his wrecked car after it flipped over on a downtown highway.

Bartlett says he came across the wreck late Sunday afternoon as he was driving on the northeast edge of downtown on his way to an event in Enid.

Bartlett says it appeared that the car blocking the westbound Interstate 244 on-ramp had struck a barrier, turned sideways, flipped and landed on its back wheels.

He called 911 and helped the driver out of the car. Bartlett says the man was “dazed” after the crash and didn’t seem to recognize the mayor.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/21CD4ct ) reports that emergency personnel arrived within minutes, and the driver didn’t appear to have any injuries.
