Semi accident closes northbound HWY 169

TULSA - All northbound lanes were closed on Highway 169 due to a semi truck pulling double trailers that jack-knifed early Saturday morning.  Northbound traffic was diverted onto 56th Street North, troopers say.

Highway patrol officials say the truck was hauling boxes of non-hazardous freight, which spilled all over the roadway.  Crews spent several hours cleaning up spilled fuel and oil.

No injuries have been reported, and southbound traffic was unaffected.

The cause of the wreck has not been released.

The highway was reopened just after 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
