A Tulsa police officer is shaken-up after a traffic accident overnight. 

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Monday as the police officer was responding to a 911 call.

Tulsa Police say they got a call that two men were fighting in the street and were told one may have a gun.  

Several police officers were rushing to the scene, including one officer which crashed his vehicle in the 2400 block of West Charles Page Blvd. 

Police say the officer missed a curve by the Adult Detention Center.  The officer's vehicle went through a fence and then clipped a car.  The vehicle then hit a pickup truck, which forced the pickup into several nearby vehicles. 

Police say the patrol car was totaled, but the officer is going to be okay.

Meanwhile, at the scene of the incident officers were responding to, Tulsa Police were not able to find a gun, but arrested both men.
