TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa police responded to four rollover accidents overnight - including two involving cell phone use and another street racing.

The first rollover happened around 11 p.m. near Highway 169 and Interstate 244. Police say two cars were racing when one came up behind a slow-moving vehicle.

The driver changed lanes quickly, losing control and rolling. EMSA took him to the hospital with minor injuries.

The first cell phone-related crash happened a few minutes later on State Highway 11 between Harvard and Yale. Police say a woman was talking to her husband on the phone when she also came behind a slower vehicle, changed lanes, lost control and rolled.

She was not wearing a seatbelt, but she was not seriously hurt.

About 2 a.m. Friday, a woman was driving east on 15th Street while texting on her cell phone. She hit a utility pole in the 2700 block or between the Broken Arrow Expressway and Delaware, rolling her Honda Accord.

She was not seriously hurt.

Finally just before midnight Thursday, a woman was going too fast around a curve at East 26th Place North and North Boston Place and rolled into a light pole - snapping it in half.

Witnesses say the woman driver got out of the vehicle carrying a portable stereo, got into another car and left.
