Tulsa, OK (August 11, 2019) – On Saturday night, August 10th, police were called to the scene of a crash into a home in midtown Tulsa. The accident happened at East Admiral Place and South Memorial Drive, according to police.
An unidentified 17-year-old driver was reported to have reached approximately 80 mph before losing control and crashing into a home.

Police stated that a man was sleeping on his couch at the time of the incident. That victim suffered at least minor injuries but is believed to be okay. Other people in the area were struck by glass and debris.
Authorities reported that the driver had been intoxicated and was arguing with his girlfriend just prior to the crash. The teenage operator also nearly collided with a baby in a stroller and cut power to the area.
