TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two people in a pickup truck were taken to a Tulsa hospital after going on a car-crashing rampage early Friday morning.

Tulsa Police say the two left a party near 83rd and Mingo just before midnight. They backed into a car parked across the street, then drove into a yard knocking down a mailbox and finally crashing into a Jeep about two blocks away.

That Jeep then rolled into a fence almost hitting a house.

The driver and a second teen in the bed of the pickup truck were taken to the hospital. No one else was hurt.

In a separate incident in Sand Springs, police say two teens crashed an SUV into a garage at around 12:45 a.m.

The teenagers say someone was chasing them when the driver lost control of the vehicle, which then hit a brick mailbox and came to rest against a house.

They were not injured.
