No Serious Injuries From Three Traffic Accidents
Tulsa Police were kept busy overnight investigating several traffic accidents. Police say a young driver flips his truck and was able to walk away. Police officers say the driver was apparently driving too fast and lost control in the 4600 block of North U.S Highway 169.
The driver rolled the pickup truck, breaking it into pieces before it came to a rest. From the looks of the damage, Tulsa Police officers thought it would be a fatality accident, but the driver was walking around after the accident. The driver was taken to a Tulsa hospital and will be okay.
The accident tied up traffic on Highway 169 while crews worked to clean up the damage.
Another high speed accident sent two people to the Tulsa County jail overnight. It happened before midnight. Witnesses told Tulsa Police the driver was going too fast on east 63rd Street when he lost control. The vehicle jumped a curb, went through a pile of brush and wrapped the vehicle's front bumper around a tree.
The driver and his passenger were found walking down the street. They were arrested by Tulsa Police for public drunkenness.
And another man walked away from a Monday afternoon traffic accident after driving his car into a house. Tulsa Police say the man was possibly cut off by another driver. The man's car ran through the wall of a home in the 5100 block of South 74th East Avenue. The vehicle ended up inside the home's garage.
No one in the home was injured.
