MAYES COUNTY — An overturned semi closed a westbound lane of the Will Rogers Turnpike.

The trailer is upside down on the side of the turnpike near North 4130 Road.

At least one person was life-flighted to the hospital.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is working the scene.

"One outside lane is still closed for remediation," OHP officials said. "The turnpike was completely shut down for about 10 minutes to allow aircraft to land."
