The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the westbound lanes of the Creek Turnpike near 129th East Avenue have been reopened after a semi rolled over early Tuesday.

Troopers said at around 2 a.m. the driver of a semi hauling two trailers apparently drifted off the road and rolled his rig near the toll plaza blocking both westbound lanes.  

The OHP closed the westbound lanes for almost two hours while tow trucks removed the truck and the trailers from the scene.

Troopers said the driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital to be checked out.  Cause of the crash remains under investigation.
