TULSA, Oklahoma -

A woman used her phone to direct the Oklahoma Highway Patrol to the car who she says hit hers on the Creek Turnpike early Thursday.

The woman told troopers the car hit her vehicle near Yale at about 2 a.m. and then drove off.

Troopers said the driver was celebrating his 23rd birthday and may have had too much to drink. They arrested him and took him to the Tulsa County jail.

The OHP identified him as Sean Christian Gainey. 

According to the arrest report, a woman was driving westbound on the Creek Turnpike in a Chevy Traverse at 1:55 a.m. when she saw a car coming up behind her at a high rate of speed. The car hit her SUV but kept going past her.

She called 911 and followed the car onto the Yale exit and then into a parking lot off of Yale. She told the OHP she and Gainey exchanged insurance information, but that Gainey then started hitting her Traverse with part of the bumper from his car.

Troopers say Gainey smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech, so they gave him a field sobriety test. They eventually gave him a breath test at the Tulsa County Jail which they say revealed he had a blood alcohol content of 0.08%

They booked him for DUI and Hit and Run Collision.
