BA Expressway Reopened At 169 After Messy Dump Truck Crash
TULSA, Oklahoma - A dump truck overturned on a ramp from southbound 169 to eastbound Broken Expressway on Monday afternoon.
It happened a few minutes after 3 o'clock on April 29, 2013.
The truck was carrying gravel which spilled onto the highway. Emergency crews are on the scene but there are no reports of any injuries in the crash.
The wreck impacted rush-hour traffic, because it took time to get the truck upright and to remove the gravel.
The eastbound lanes of the BA were reopened around 6:30 p.m.
Video from SkyNews 6 showed a single lane of cars actually driving over the spilled gravel in order to get through the area.
It's the second time on Monday that crashes backed up traffic in the area.
Two crashes on Highway 169 near 41st Street backed up rush-hour traffic Monday morning for miles.
Two people were hurt in those crashes, but neither seriously.
