A driver was arrested on DUI complaints after crashing into an officer’s vehicle head-on in Norman, Oklahoma.

According to police, the crash happened just after 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 30 at Classen and Inhoff. The officer was going northbound on Classen, approaching that intersection when another driver going southbound on Classen tried to turn left onto Inhoff.
