Man arrested for sex crime parole violation after crashing into Tulsa motel

TULSA, OK – A man was taken into police custody and is facing multiple charges, including one related to a sex crime, after he crashed into a motel in Tulsa, according to KTUL.

The accident happened at the OYO Motel, located at 35 N Sheridan Road, near I-244 (Crosstown Expressway), when Duane Harper, of Indiana, reportedly crashed a white Mitsubishi SUV into a motel room wall.

The beam supporting the balcony on the second floor was damaged, which led to Tulsa FD needing to reinforce it.

Bystanders claimed that Harper was attempting to run over a woman when the accident happened. This has not been independently confirmed by our staff, as the victim left the scene before officials arrived.

Harper was treated at the scene for undisclosed injuries.

Harper was arrested on a warrant for a parole violation in connection with a prior sex crime in Indiana. He is also facing charges of resisting arrest and public intoxication.
