I-244 Westbound at the Highway 75 split was partially blocked after a semi-truck carrying a windmill base apparently hit a light pole.  The roads reopened around 12:20 p.m.

Our traffic camera shows that traffic was restricted to the far-left lane just before the split. However, it appeared that drivers were still be able to continue westbound I-244 and southbound Highway 75.

Reports say the crash was caused by the driver hitting a light pole. 

A semi carrying a similar load was causing traffic issues in Sapulpa Thursday afternoon when its load came loose on a turn.
