OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – No injuries have been reported thus far in connection to a semi rollover accident along the interstate near the Oak Grove area.

According to KOCO 5, the incident happened around 4:05 a.m. on the eastbound side of I-40 at the off-ramp to I-44, which is just southwest of the OKC Fairgrounds.

Police say that the driver of an 18-wheeler lost control of his truck while trying to handle a curve in the roadway, at which point the semi crashed and rolled onto its side.

Officials closed the ramp from I-40EB to I-44 for several hours while crews investigated and worked to clear the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.
