Tulsa police responded to several wrecks on or near State Highway 11 early Saturday. At about 12:30 a.m., the driver of a Chevy Tahoe was eastbound on Interstate 244 and was taking the ramp to go north of Highway 11.

He lost control, striking the guardrail and riding the rail before flipping and landing upright.

There were several people in the vehicle, and one girl had a badly injured foot.

Just after 2 a.m., a small car was eastbound on Highway 11 just east of Memorial when it hit the left side railing. The car then traveled across the highway and struck the right guardrail.

Part of the railing wound up in the back seat of the car. No one was at the crash scene when police arrived.

At about 3:30 a.m., officers got a 911 call about a rollover wreck on Highway 11 west of U.S. Highway 75. They were told a man was trapped in the vehicle, but when emergency crews arrived the driver was out of the car.

Police believe he had fallen asleep behind the wheel. He was taken to the hospital by EMSA in unknown condition.
