VINITA, Oklahoma -- Traffic is flowing again after a two-semi collision closed all four lanes of I-44 (Will Rogers Turnpike) at mile marker 294 Friday afternoon.

SkyNews6 flew over the scene and showed a semi with front end damage and traffic backed up for miles.

Westbound traffic was being diverted at the Afton exit. Eastbound traffic turned off at Vinita. The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority said the closure lasted several hours as crews cleared the scene.

It's not yet known if there were any injuries.
