Tulsa police found a stolen car on fire after a crash near 30th and Utica. The car was found around 2:45 Friday morning.

Authorities say the vehicle hit a curb, drove through one yard and took out a tree. It then hit another curb and plowed through a second yard, leaving it damaged.

The car then crossed Utica Avenue and came to rest in a third yard where it caught fire. An officer who was driving by saw a dark-colored, older model Chevy Tahoe with its hazards on in the roadway near the damaged car.

When the officer got turned around, the Tahoe was gone, last seen eastbound on 31st Street from Utica Avenue.

Police say the car was a Honda that had just been stolen. The person driving the Honda could not be found.
