TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- The driver of a pickup truck was rushed to a Tulsa hospital after his truck rolled over on U.S. Highway 169 early Monday morning. 

Tulsa Police say the wreck happened on 169 at the intersection with the Creek Turnpike just after midnight.

The truck was hauling a Bobcat skid steer loader on a trailer when for some unknown reason it left the roadway and drove into the center median. 

That caused the pickup truck to roll onto its top. 

There is no word on the condition of the driver. 

Then, at 2:45 a.m. Monday, a pickup truck eastbound on state Highway 11 went across the center median and westbound lanes before rolling over on the shoulder of the westbound lanes. 

EMSA took the driver to a Tulsa hospital. 

Tulsa Police believe the driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
