TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police are investigating a multiple-vehicle wreck that involved a fire truck Friday night. Police say alcohol may have been involved as the driver and passengers of the car that caused the crash ran away from the scene.

It happened at about 11:30 p.m. on 51st Street South, just east of Yale. A car heading westbound on 51st Street at a high rate of speed slammed into the back of a pickup that had slowed to turn into Taco Bell, according to TPD Patrol Officer Jon Grefton.

The car hit the pickup hard enough to push it forward about 150 feet into the back of a Tulsa Fire Department fire engine.

Police say four people, a woman and three men, ran from the car and were picked up by another vehicle.

Blood - and an ID - were found in the car. The vehicle was not stolen, Grefton said.

EMSA medics checked out the occupants of the truck at the scene but did not transport anyone to the hospital. 

The car and the truck were totaled. The fire engine had minor damage, and no firefighters were injured, according to police.
