A driver is in custody Tuesday after a series of hit-and-run incidents in Tulsa.
Tulsa police officers responded to a call around 9:30 a.m. about a hit-and-run near 6th Street and Frankfort. A driver had rammed through three gates then drove away.
Five minutes later, officers responded to another call from 5th Place about a driver of a similar SUV running into fence posts, trying to run over construction workers and stealing a chainsaw.
Around 10:10 a.m. officers responded to a call about the same SUV running into a fence near E. Admiral Blvd. and Xanthus and that the driver was trying to run away. Officers arrived and found Austin Hingey by the wrecked SUV trying to get it to start.
Hingey was taken to the hospital and then booked into the Tulsa County Jail.
Hingey is facing the following charges:
Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon
Malicious Injury to Property Exceeding $2500 (Two Counts)
Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident (Two Counts)
