Accident on Will Rogers Turnpike shuts down highway for a time Sunday

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Authorities say at least two people were hurt in a 30-car pileup on Interstate 44 near the Oklahoma-Missouri border Sunday.

Oklahoma Transportation Authority spokeswoman Michelle Paul says a chain-reaction occurred about 12:30 p.m. when several cars driving into blizzard conditions on I-44 collided.

Other vehicles crashed into accident, including a semi that jackknifed and went over a concrete barrier wall into the eastbound lanes.

Paul says the truck landed on a vehicle with two people inside. Crews freed the pair and they were taken to a hospital, but their conditions weren't immediately known.

Paul says dozens of motorists are stranded along a stretch of the highway between milemarkers 309 and 313. Troopers and road crews have been unable to divert them because there aren't any exits nearby.
