KELLYVILLE, Oklahoma -- All lanes of the Turner Turnpike are back open after a deadly crash closed one westbound lane most of the day Tuesday.

The fatal semi truck that crash happened early Tuesday morning reduced westbound traffic to one lane at mile marker 209 near the Kellyville exit.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the crash of the semi, which was loaded with milk and milk-related products, occurred at around 2 a.m.  Troopers say the driver died in the crash. 

Troopers say the truck was westbound when it went off the highway, crossed a field and came to rest in a creek bed.
