TULSA, Oklahoma -

A large pipe fell off a truck and blocked two lanes of a Tulsa highway Thursday.

The L-shaped pipe, which appeared to be about a foot in diameter and about ten feet long, fell off a truck at about 1:30 p.m. It blocked the two inside lanes of eastbound I-244. Video from Osage SkyNews 6 HD showed traffic backing up on I-244 while emergency crews figured out how to get it off the roadway.

Police had stopped a semi further up the highway from which the pipe appeared to have fallen. The semi was carrying several other pieces of similar pipe. 

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said they had the pipe removed and loaded back onto the semi in about 30 minutes.

ODOT sent the semi driver back on its way after making sure the load was secure.

So far no one has reported any damage or injuries.
