TULSA, Oklahoma -- Crews spend several hours Thursday morning unloading a disabled a semi tractor trailer parked in the outside lane of westbound I-44 at Yale in Tulsa.  

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the outside lane in the construction zone was closed for about 3 hours.

Troopers tell News On 6 the trailer had broken a rear axle.  It was loaded with 32,000 pounds of frozen meat, which had to be removed before they could move the semi.
