OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — A man was arrested Wednesday morning after a crash that hurt at least one person near Wiley Post Airport-PWA in northwest Oklahoma City, reports Victor Park, news reporter with FOX25.

The collision occurred on a span of North Rockwell Avenue between Northwest 61st Terrace and Northwest 61st Street. It was first reported shortly before 7:24 a.m.

It was not immediately clear what led up to the wreck, but a male driver in a passenger car was arrested for suspected intoxication after striking a tow truck.

The incident was described as an “injury crash,” but authorities have not confirmed the number of victims hurt or the extent of their injuries.

A hazmat unit was called to the scene to clear a resulting fuel leak.

A section of North Rockwell Avenue was shut down during the response but was reopened at 8:37 a.m., more than an hour later.
