Semi Overturns On Tulsa IDL
TULSA, Oklahoma - A semi truck overturned on the northwest corner of the Interdispersal Loop in Tulsa Wednesday afternoon. The truck lost its load which appears to be metal fencing.
The truck overturned on the curve that takes traffic from the west to the south.
Traffic is getting through slowly in one lane, but there is a significant backup.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol and other emergency crews are on site.
The Department of Public Safety issued the following alert:
I-244 narrowed, ramp closed at northwest corner Inner Dispersal Loop
Drivers can expect various lane closures on westbound I-244 at the northwest corner of the Inner Dispersal Loop until further notice due to an overturned semi. Significant delays can be expected through the evening rush hour, and drivers are urged to seek an alternate route.
The southbound L.L. Tisdale off-ramp to westbound I-244 will remain closed while the scene is cleared.
A second wreck took place near the overturned semi. At least one person was taken to the hospital, but we don't know how serious their injuries are.
