TULSA, Oklahoma -- A night out led to a stolen car, a joy ride and an injury wreck overnight Saturday. Tulsa Police Sergeant Bryan Bryden said a group of friends were out at a bar when one girl gave her keys to another girl to get something out of her light blue Toyota Camry.

When the friend did not return for some time, the car owner learned that the friend had taken off in the Toyota. Police say the friend drove westbound on the Broken Arrow Expressway. Just west of Yale, she slammed the car into the back end of a Nissan Rogue.

The driver of the Nissan lost control of the vehicle, left the roadway to the right and ended up wedged between some barriers and a property fence. The driver of the Nissan had minor injuries.

The Camry spun out but continued on down the highway to exit on to Harvard where the driver abandoned the wrecked car.

As the car caught on fire, the girl took off on foot and got a ride to a nearby QuikTrip, Bryden said. The woman who gave the girl a ride ended up reporting the incident to the police.

Bryden did not release the name of the girl who took and wrecked the car, but she is described as a white female in her early 20s wearing a gray hoodie and light blue jeans.
