LAWTON, Okla. (AP) _ A southbound lane of the HE Bailey Turnpike in Lawton was closed Monday morning because of a partial bridge collapse.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported the closure about 3:30 Monday morning on the interstate, near Fort Sill.

No injuries were reported.

Lawton received well over 2 inches of rain Sunday, and some flooding was reported, but authorities haven't said rain was a factor in the bridge collapse.
