    Tulsa police responded to a single car crash near 17th and Peoria late Thursday night.

    Officers say a white four-door sedan was speeding when it collided with a power pole, causing the car to roll.

    No one else was in the vehicle. The driver was not seriously injured and refused medical help.

    After running some field tests on the driver, officers determined she was drunk.

    The driver was arrested for driving under the influence.

    Peoria is currently shut down from 17th Street to 17th Place both north and southbound lanes until the pole is replaced.

    PSO is hoping to have the road partially opened by rush hour.
