TULSA, OK -- A passenger was hospitalized and the driver arrested after a man crashed his SUV into the woods of North Tulsa. The accident happened at about 4 a.m. Saturday in the 3800 block of North Peoria.

Police at the scene said the car was traveling too fast south on Peoria when the driver lost control of the vehicle. It skidded across the road and landed in some trees, just missing a utility pole.

Witnesses at the scene said three people were in the car when it crashed. Police say the vehicle left 231 feet of skid marks before striking the curb and continuing over 50 feet into the trees.

Tulsa police arrested the driver, 25-year-old Stephon Raynard Hadley of Tulsa. He was booked on complaints of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, speed greater than posted and no driver's license.

Police say Hadley's wife, who was riding in the front passenger seat, was severely injured in the wreck. It was not clear at the accident scene whether she had been ejected or crawled out of the car after it crashed.

Tulsa fire worked the scene of the wreck, which was complicated by the heavily wooded area.

The third occupant of the car left on foot.
