MULDROW, Oklahoma -- A large hole opened up on an Oklahoma bridge forcing the Highway patrol to shut down part of I-40 westbound near Muldrow for a short time.
Troopers discovered the hole after 3 p.m. Sunday and closed the highway. But, it was too late for a number of drivers, the hole had already left its mark.
"I mean I had to slow down real slow and jerk the wheel and I looked at it and said ' dang that's a big hole'. And, then get up here and everybody's got flat tires," said one driver.
Troopers say construction is to blame for the hole. They managed to re-open the road about an hour later.
Oklahoma was recently ranked second in the nation for its bad bridges.
