Tulsa police said a man driving north on 120th East Ave. in the 2700 block when his vehicle left the road, drove into a yard and destroyed a mailbox early Thursday morning. 

Police said the crash happened at about 1 a.m. after the man's vehicle left the road for an unknown reason, ran over the mailbox, got back on the road then went off the road again and came to a stop in another yard. 

A neighbor heard the crash and called it in, police said. 

TPD, Tulsa Fire Department and EMSA responded and found the man passed out in his car, police said. 

The man was taken to a hospital to be checked out, and police said he appeared to be intoxicated on either drugs or alcohol. 

TPD didn't arrest the man but officers said they would file an out of custody warrant later.
