TULSA, OK -- No one was hurt in a pair of overnight car crashes.

Police were dispatched to a three-car wreck in the 4600 block of East 24th Place early Monday.

Police say the driver of a black Neon was driving on 24th Place when the car slammed into the back of a parked pickup truck.

The pickup truck then crashed into another car parked in front of it, landing on the hood.

Police say they found a woman inside the Neon, but she told officers she wasn't driving and doesn't know who was.

Shortly after 5 a.m. Monday, the driver of a garbage truck heading south on U.S. Highway 169 tried but could not avoid a northbound car in the southbound lanes and struck the car head-on.

The truck's driver told police he blew his horn and flashed his lights, but the car still struck the garbage truck head-on in the 1700 block of South U.S. Highway 169.

Police say the driver of the car ran away.
