Tulsa Police are searching for the driver involved in an early Monday morning car accident.

Officers were called around 2 AM about a report of someone who had crashed into the garage of a home near the 15th Street exit, just off the Broken Arrow Expressway. Investigators say the driver of the Suburban was no where to be found.

No one inside the home was hurt.

A similar accident happened about 30 minutes later on the BA Expressway near Yale. Investigators say a man missed the 31st Street exit and wound up crashing through a fence and slamming into a storage building.

Officers spotted the man nearby, walking away from the accident. He was arrested for suspicion of DUI.

No one else was involved.
