One eastbound lane of I-44 remains closed in Sapulpa after a fiery head-on crash Thursday night.

Authorities say an SUV was going the wrong way on the interstate when it struck a FedEx truck head-on.

The impact caused the FedEx truck to catch on fire, with part of it dangling over the edge of the bridge above Highway 66.

The driver of the SUV died on scene, authorities say.

The driver of the FedEx truck was not hurt.

Eastbound traffic from the Turner Turnpike was diverted onto the Creek Turnpike overnight while crews cleaned up the wreckage.
