Northbound Highway 75 in Okmulgee County was closed six miles south of Okmulgee Friday morning after semi loaded with beer overturned spilling its load, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Troopers say northbound traffic was diverted at Dewar onto Highway 266.

The OHP said salvage crews worked for several hours to clean up the beer.  The northbound lane was reopened at about 11:20 a.m.

No word on if there are any injuries.

Elsewhere, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a crash between a pickup and semi on the Will Rogers Turnpike near Adair exit closed the inside eastbound lane for over an hour early Friday.

No word on if there are any injuries.
