LUTHER, Okla. – A tar truck is spilling hot tar on a busy Oklahoma highway, and traffic is shut down on parts of the Turner Turnpike.

It’s happening just west of Luther, Okla.  on the Turner Turnpike eastbound.

Troopers say the driver of the truck noticed he had a leak and pulled to the shoulder of the road.

Only one lane of eastbound traffic is open on the Turner Turnpike just west of the Luther exit  because of the hot tar mess.
