A crash closed the eastbound lanes of the Broken Arrow Expressway at Highway 169 just after 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Video from Osage SkyNews 6 showed an SUV on its top and a car badly damaged.

It also showed firefighters helping with the clean-up.

The driver told officers he had just left a tire shop where he had his tires rotated.

It's not clear exactly how many people were injured. 

The highway was reopened a short time later.
