Semi Crashes On Turner Turnpike Near Stroud
STROUD, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a semi crash on the Turner Turnpike near Stroud closed one westbound lane and one eastbound lane early Thursday.
Troopers said the semi was headed west when it hit an inside concrete barrier just east of Stroud at about 1:39 a.m. The impact caused the truck's cab to roll over.
The OHP believes the driver fell asleep prior to the crash. They said he was injured and was taken to a Stroud hospital.
At 5:45 a.m., the OHP reopened all lanes after wreckers removed the semi and its trailer from the highway.
