A car that had been shot at at a north Tulsa intersection crashed into traffic while trying to get away from the shooter Thursday afternoon.

Police said a gold sedan that was eastbound on Apache Street was stopped at the Peoria Avenue stop light when a white Dodge Durango pulled up to it and someone inside started shooting at the car around 4:40 p.m. The car's driver then accelerated into the intersection on a red light, hitting a Jeep that was southbound on Peoria, Sgt. Charlie Hardaway said.

The gold vehicle's driver then got out and ran away, and the Dodge SUV drove off.

Three juveniles who were in the Jeep were all injured in the crash and were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, the Tulsa Police Department said in a Facebook post.

Police have not yet found the driver of the gold car, but they said in the Facebook post they do think the driver was either injured or shot.

The Tulsa Police Department's K9 Unit and patrol officers were looking for that person Thursday evening. The police helicopter and patrol officers also were looking for the Durango.
