Semi Rollover Crash Closes Tulsa Highway Ramp
TULSA, Oklahoma - All lanes of Interstate 244 are open again.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed the westbound ramp from Interstate 44 near 129th East Avenue on Thursday morning because of a semi rollover crash. For several hours, while the wreck was being cleared, westbound traffic was diverted to westbound I-44.
Crews had to cut out the top of the semi-trailer and use machines to take out all the school bus axles that it was hauling.
Troopers say the driver of the semi wasn’t hurt in the wreck.
