The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Tulsa Police arrested three drivers for DUI in three separate crashes early Thursday.

All three occurred at about 2 a.m.

Tulsa Police say one driver ran off the road and hit several light poles before coming to a stop near I-44 and Lewis.

An OHP trooper on his way to that crash saw an SUV crashed into the barriers on I-44 between 41st Street and the Broken Arrow Expressway.

And a Tulsa Police officer was almost hit head-on by another driver that swerved into his lane on 11th Street near Sandusky.

Police say the officer was able to jump a curb to avoid the crash.

In all three incidents, the drivers were arrested on suspicion of DUI and taken to the Tulsa County jail.
