WELLSTON, Okla. (AP) _ An accident involving a tractor-trailer rig has shut down westbound lanes of the Turner Turnpike just east of Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the lanes are closed near Wellston at mile marker 159. Westbound traffic is being diverted off the turnpike at Chandler.

Troopers say no injuries are reported from the accident, but the semi has overturned and there is no estimate when westbound lanes of the turnpike will be re-opened.
