TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police say a man suffered minor injuries after being struck by a truck in his front yard early New Years Day.

It happened in the 11400 block of E. Newton just before 2 a.m.

Police say the victim's ex-wife, along with two other men, drove to the home to pick up their children.

When she arrived, an altercation occurred between her and victim's girlfriend. That's when police say the two men drove the truck into the victim's yard, striking the victim and pushing him up on the hood.

Police say this was not the first time they've been called out to this location.

"We have been out here numerous times for domestics," said TPD Officer Josh McMath.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. Police are currently looking for the two men who fled the scene.
