TULSA, OK -- A motorist is injured after rolling his pickup truck overnight.

Tulsa Police says they received a call from the driver of a pickup truck just after 2 a.m. Thursday.

The man told officers he had been drinking at a Tulsa night club when he ran his truck off the road and into a ditch. His pickup hit a utility pole, flipping it onto its side.

The driver told police he was trapped in his pickup truck somewhere between 11th and 41st Streets on 129th East Avenue.

Police officers search the area, but were unable to locate him. A short time later they found him at the end of a gravel road along Sheridan and Skelly Drive.

The man was taken to a Tulsa hospital but officers say he was not seriously hurt.

And one car is damaged after another overnight traffic accident.

The accident happened on U.S. Highway 75 at 17th Street.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol say the car slammed into a wall, where it came to a stop.

OHP troopers say four girls got out of the car and abandoned it in the middle of the road.

No one was hurt in the accident.
