A Monday afternoon wreck sent two people to the hospital and shut down I-44 in Tulsa for almost two hours.

It happened around noon on I-44 near Yale. Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say two cars traveling westbound, crossed the center median and were both struck by two separate semi-trucks headed in the opposite direction.

The drivers of both cars were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The drivers of the big rigs were not injured.

The victim’s names haven't been released.

The interstate re-opened an hour and a half later.
