TULSA, OK -- Tulsa police arrested a woman for driving under the influence after she crashed into two cars Thursday morning.

Officers say the woman left from a bar on Lewis just before 2 a.m.

When she left the bar, she hit a cab and kept going. The cab driver followed her vehicle onto eastbound Interstate 44 at about Yale. According to police the woman rear-ended a car with three people inside and then hit a guardrail.

Police say that despite two flattened tires, she kept driving.

Both the cab driver and the driver of the other car called police as they followed the woman's car down I-44.

An officer was nearby and saw the woman's car weaving from lane to lane. She finally spun completely around facing oncoming traffic with the car against the inside wall of the highway.

The woman was checked out by EMSA and went to jail for DUI. No one was seriously injured in the accidents.
