It was a busy night on Tulsa streets for accident investigators.   Just after midnight, Tulsa police officers were called to 51st and Hudson where the driver of a Land Rover failed to make a turn and hit a wall.  The driver of the vehicle fled from the scene on foot, but was arrested a short time later.   Police believe he had been drinking.

Another crash was reported on Highway 169 and the Broken Arrow Expressway.   In that wreck, the driver was exiting onto a ramp when it struck a trailer billboard.  That driver also ran away from the accident site.

And, two teens were hospitalized after crashing a car in the 6100 block of North Cincinnati.  The driver was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control.  The car went into a ditch and struck a culvert.  Four juveniles were inside the car at the time of the crash.
