Tulsa Police are investigating after a driver ran off the road and slammed into two cars parked in driveways near 21st and I-44.

The driver took off, and the police report says the car smelled of alcohol and there was an empty whiskey bottle inside.

One of the victims told News On 6 that her car was totaled and she had less than 50,000 miles on it and now, she has no way to get around.

Doorbell security footage shows the moment the driver slammed into the second car before running off.

That car belongs to Maria Guzman.

She’s frustrated, trying to figure out what to do next and who’s going to pay since her car was totaled.

"I was like really shaken,” said Guzman. “I was very scared and very nervous, and it was just like an awful experience."

It makes her even angrier she’s in this situation because none of it was her fault.

"You have to get a new car, pay for new registration, start all over with payments, also the deductible,” said Guzman. “And then see how much they want to give you for the total loss."

Neighbors said it was shocking.

"When I came back from dropping my mom off at work, the cars were crashed, there was a lot of people over there,” said Amira Silva. “Asking everyone if they were ok."

"I heard the loud bang,” said Jerry Crockett. “I came out in less than a minute, and they had already got out of the car and took off running. I'm just glad they didn't hit nobody, but they hit those two cars."

They say this isn’t the first time this has happened. Only a few weeks ago, they say another parked car was hit.

Now, they hope the police will be able to find the driver of the car and get justice.

"What about you?” said Guzman. “You keep paying everything, working hard to pay your bills, and then this happens? It's not right."

Police found the ID of the owner inside the car, but say they have to prove who was behind the wheel.

If you recognize the car or know who know who was driving it, last Thursday, call CrimeStoppers at 918-596-COPS.
