Two people are injured in an accident on a rural Rogers County road near Catoosa.  Catoosa Police say the driver was speeding when he went over a hill and lost control.  The car hit a ditch, spun around and snapped a utility pole in half, before landing on its top.

The driver wasn't seriously hurt but he was taken into custody for suspicion of DUI. 

A female passenger was taken to a Tulsa hospital and a male passenger was flown by medical helicopter to another Tulsa hospital. 

There is no word on their conditions. 

And the Oklahoma Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a car which left the scene of an accident at I-244 and U.S. Highway 169 overnight. 

OHP troopers say the driver was northbound and tried to go east when the vehicle ran off the ramp. 

The vehicle flipped onto a guardrail and the driver ran off.
