Emergency crews were busy overnight investigating several accidents.

One accident on I-244 sent a motorcycle rider to a Tulsa hospital. Tulsa Police say a man was westbound on the Interstate highway early Thursday morning when he went off the road and into a ditch. He broke his shoulder.

Also on I-244, two people were taken into custody after the driver hit a pole. It happened around midnight. Tulsa Police say the female driver and her male passenger made it to a nearby Wendy's. They then got into an altercation with Tulsa firefighters who responded to the scene.

The pair was arrested for suspicion of DUI, public drunkenness and assault.
