MURRAY COUNTY, OK — A vehicle crash Tuesday morning closed a section of southbound Interstate 35 near south Davis, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

The collision occurred on the southbound lanes at Exit 51 to U.S. Highway 77. It was first reported by the OKDOT at 5:11 a.m.

Officials have not released details on the cause of the accident, but the entire southbound interstate remained blocked for over an hour.

By 6:26 a.m., all southbound traffic was able to get by through a single lane. Motorists were warned of continued delays as crews worked to clear the scene.

At 12:10 p.m., nearly 7 hours after the initial report, the wreck had been cleared and all lanes were reopened to normal traffic.

It remains unclear at this time whether anyone was injured.
