OKLAHOMA CITY – All lanes of Interstate 40 westbound at Interstate 44 were closed Saturday afternoon due to a collision involving a semi truck, according to officials.

Officials said there was also some damage to the bridge.

OKCFD crews were on scene to mitigate the problem.

Reportedly, the driver and passenger of the semi were transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

Traffic did slow down.
