Tulsa Police arrested a man Thursday morning for reportedly causing a serious crash in a major interstate cone zone.

It happened early Thursday in the westbound construction area of Interstate 44 just west of Lewis Avenue.

Police said Louis Jamison was driving at speeds close to 100 miles per hour, recklessly darting in and out of traffic.  He tried to drive between two cars and ended up hitting both before flipping his own car.

A woman in a Mini Cooper was taken to the hospital for serious injuries. OHP troopers indicated that she should survive her injuries.

According to the booking report, Jamison had to be pulled out of his own car by police. Additionally, he was unsteady on his feet and had an odor of alcohol on his person. 

Officers took him into custody following the accident and booked him on one count of driving under the influence.
