Tulsa firefighters help put out a truck fire Thursday morning, which shuts down traffic on US highway 75.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a semi-truck with a flatbed trailer was southbound on US highway 75 when the driver apparently tried to avoid something on the road. The driver lost control, ran off the road near West 41st Street and US highway 75 and his rig caught fire.

The driver of the truck, Jorge Moreno was treated at a Tulsa hospital for a broken nose.

A portion of the bridge at the intersection was also damaged in the accident.
