MIDWEST CITY, Okla. – As heavy rain continued to hit the metro on Friday morning, officials say the weather made it especially treacherous for drivers.

Around 10 a.m., troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol were called to an injury accident on westbound I-40 near Douglas Blvd.

Initial reports indicate that a pickup truck hit the back of a semi-truck, which caused part of the highway to become blocked.
