The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a semi went off the road on the Will Rogers Turnpike near Claremore and rolled onto its side early Thursday.

Troopers said the accident happened in the eastbound lanes about two miles east of the Claremore exit.

The OHP says a little before 4 a.m. the driver apparently lost control sending the truck into a ditch. They say both the driver and a passenger were checked out by paramedics. Troopers said one of them suffered minor injuries, but will be OK.

The OHP says both eastbound lanes at the accident remain open, while crews unload the semi's trailer which was full of fruit.

No word on when the truck will be towed from the scene.
