TULSA, Oklahoma --  Tulsa Police arrested the driver of a pickup truck which bounced off a guardrail and back into traffic, setting off a chain reaction crash early Thursday morning.

Police say they arrested 70-year-old Stanley Campbell of Owasso on a complaint of DUI leading to an injury accident. 

The resulting crash in the westbound lanes of the Sand Springs Expressway closed the highway for several hours. 

Tulsa Police say two semis and 7 private vehicles were involved.
