TULSA, OK – Troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol were forced to block all lanes on I-20 after a semi-truck jackknifed Monday morning.

According to KTUL, the accident occurred along the freeway just west of Claremore.

Responding officers say the driver overcorrected causing the Domino’s semi to veer off the road and jackknife in the embankment. All lanes were blocked for some time following the incident, but have since been reopened.

Fortunately, the driver was uninjured as a result.
