TULSA, Oklahoma -- One man is dead and another is in critical condition at a Tulsa hospital following a head-on crash late Wednesday night.

At about 10:30 p.m. a pickup truck heading south on Yale near 81st street was seen weaving in and out of traffic.

At one point, Tulsa Police say the pickup truck made its way into the northbound lane and drove into the path of a car.

Police Corporal Mike Fitzgerald says the 55-year-old driver of the pickup truck was pronounced dead at the hospital.  The 63-year-old driver of the car remains in the hospital.

Names of both men were not released, pending notification of next of kin.

In order to clean up the wreck, police closed off Yale from 87th Street to about 83rd Street.

While Police were directing vehicles to turn around an SUV ran into a utility pole.

That driver, identified as Caleb Feeley of Broken Arrow, was unhurt.

Officers found empty bottles of alcohol in Feeley's car.  He was arrested for DUI and taken to the Tulsa County jail.
