Driver Falls Asleep At Wheel, Hits Pole

Posted: Updated:
Public Service Company of Oklahoma will replace a damaged pole Tuesday morning after a driver crashed into it.

Tulsa Police say around 1:30 a.m. a driver fell asleep at the wheel near 65th and Peoria and hit a telephone pole.  That pole then knocked into a electric pole.  Part of Peoria was closed while a PSO technician inspected the damage.  Later he said officials could reopen Peoria and that a crew would be out later to fix it.

EMSA took the driver to a hospital and is expected to be okay.

Peoria is back open now.
