YUKON, Okla. – An accident involving a semi-truck forced authorities to shut down lanes of a busy road Monday morning.

Officers say a truck driver fell asleep behind the wheel and ran into the center median near I-40 and Garth Brooks Blvd.

After crashing into the median, the truck slid down the slope, hitting part of the bridge.

The truck burst into flames but amazingly, no one was injured in the crash.

Garth Brooks Blvd. was narrowed to one lane as emergency crews tried to clean up the mess.
