Police said a woman is in the hospital after she was hit by suspected drunk driver while pushing a disabled car along a Sand Springs road early Friday.

Officers said the driver of a Ford Mustang, identified as 25-year-old Jared Tash, was arrested following that crash. 

Tash told officers he drank "his normal amount" of alcoholic beverages - 6 to 8 drinks - before the crash, an arrest report states.

In the report, after finishing a field sobriety test, Tash told officers, "go ahead and take me to jail, I'm over the limit."

Police say two women ran out of gas in the 1000 block of West Wekiwa Road near the Sand Springs' Case Community Park at 12:37 a.m.  One woman was pushing and the other steering their disabled car. Police say one was taken to the hospital, and the other woman refused treatment. 

Jared Tash was booked in the Tulsa County jail on complaints including DUI involved in an injury crash, speeding and transporting an open container.
