Authorities know the name of the man they are looking for, and they believe the teenage daughter of the car owner knows him as well.

Sometime over the weekend, a car was reported stolen in Tulsa. Around 1 a.m. Monday, police got a call from the teenaged girl, saying the person who took it was going to meet her at the Taco Bell.
Police got there, and the girl reportedly told them she was texting a guy in the stolen car.

When the car showed up - the driver spotted police, took off and went a few blocks north to the Seminole Hills Apartments. Police got there and found the driver had crashed into a parked car, which slammed into another parked car
The driver ran off, and police say the girl continued texting him.

She's with her parents, and police are looking for the man who ran off.
