Tulsa Police have arrested Jose Tirad-Nunez in connection with a traffic accident that ended a police chase Monday afternoon in east Tulsa. Tirad-Nunez faces several charges, including eluding an officer, and possession of a stolen vehicle among other things. The chase ended with 11 people in a Tulsa hospital.

The police chase started after the in-car navigation system told Tulsa Police the Chevy was stolen. A Tulsa Police officer tried to pull the SUV over on U.S. Highway 169 Monday afternoon, but the driver sped off. The chase ended at Admiral and Garnett, when the stolen SUV smashed into a car.

The force of the wreck flipped the SUV into a ditch. Tulsa Police say the accident victims in both vehicles range from 4-years to 22-years-old.
