TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police say a man driving the wrong way was hurt when his SUV rolled just after noon on Friday.

According to police, the man was driving southbound on Detroit when his Ford Explorer collided with two other vehicles and rolled over.

Detroit is a one-way street in the northbound direction there.

Police say the crash caused minor damage to the other two vehicles, but their drivers were not hurt.

Police aren't saying what caused the man to head the wrong way on Detroit.  They say he did not turn onto Detroit from the highway and had come from over the hill instead.

Police had to close down the road in order to clear the accident scene.
