McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - A nearly 30 mile section of the Indian Nation Turnpike that was shut down this morning is now reopened.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the turnpike reopened about 7:45 after both north- and southbound lanes were closed for more than six hours when a semi carrying toxic chlorine pellets overturned north of McAlester.
Troopers say there was no chemical leak but officials could not move the truck until the chlorine pellets were removed.
Details of the accident and whether there are injuries have not yet been released.
