Police say a flatbed trailer came loose from a vehicle and slammed into a Tulsa home early Wednesday after thieves had stolen it from a nearby apartment complex.

The home is located near 41st and 129th East Avenue.  

Officers say the 20-foot-long trailer had just been stolen from 41st and Garnett when it came loose, rolled across several front lawns, hit a mailbox and garage before running into a car.

The impact pushed the car into a Ford pickup parked beside it. Police said the trailer wasn't secured properly, and that's why it came loose on East 37th Place.

The owner of the car and pickup, Solomon Rivera, says he is thankful no one was injured.

Someone flagged police over at one point and said the trailer belonged to them. Police have tried to contact that person and haven't been successful yet.
