TULSA, Oklahoma -- Police are investigating whether heavy fog early Tuesday played a role in a deadly crash in north Tulsa. 

The crash happened at around 1 a.m. near the intersection of Independence and North Louisville.

Tulsa Police were trying to pull the car over at Admiral and Pittsburg, but the 20-year-old driver sped off. 

Because of the fog, police decided not to chase the vehicle. 

A short time later, they found the car crashed into a cedar tree in a yard.  Police say the car hit a tree, went over a pickup truck and landed upside down.

The driver, Justin Shipley, was pronounced dead at the scene.
