Semi hauling cattle overturns, shuts down northbound Interstate 35 in southern Oklahoma


PAOLI, Oklahoma — Northbound lanes of Interstate 35 near Paoli are closed after a tractor-trailer rig hauling cattle overturned.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says northbound lanes are closed at mile marker 80. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says traffic is being diverted onto State Highway 145 at mile marker 79. Traffic is then detoured to U.S. Highway 77 to Wayne and to Highway 59 before being routed back onto the interstate.

OHP Lt. John Vincent said it isn't known how long the interstate will be closed.

Vincent said the rig was hauling about 100 head of cattle, but that none escaped the trailer.

Details of the crash and whether there are injuries were not immediately released.
