TULSA, OK – A female driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after a single-vehicle rollover crash into the backyard of a home last Friday, reports KTUL.

According to Tulsa police, the violent crash occurred overnight around 1 a.m. on Riverside Drive between East 56th Street and South Peoria Avenue.

The woman was reportedly driving at an excessive speed when her vehicle left the roadway and went into an embankment that forced it airborne, slamming through a fence and crashing into someone’s backyard.

When officers responded they found the woman with minor injuries and determined she was likely under the influence. She was then arrested on suspicion of DUI.
