The Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrests a Broken Arrow woman for DUI late Thursday after a three vehicle crash on Highway 75 just north of Tulsa.

Troopers say at about 11 p.m., 28-year-old Cenneca Snyder got onto 75 at 56th Street North, going the wrong direction.

The OHP says a northbound semi driver tried to avoid hitting her car, but still knocked Snyder's car into the center cable barrier.  The truck then went off the road, coming to rest down an embankment.

Troopers say a second car, also heading north, then struck Snyder's disabled car, before it too went off the highway, stopping in a grassy area off the highway.

The OHP says the semi was carrying items headed to the Whirlpool plant in the nearby Cherokee Industrial Park.  Those items were unloaded so wreckers could eventually move the truck.

Crews were also called out to clean up diesel fuel which had been spilled on the highway.

The OHP says Cenneca Snyder was booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints including DUI and driving the wrong way on a divided highway.
