CHICKASHA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has reopened all southbound lanes of the HE Bailey Turnpike following a fiery, fatal crash near Chickasha.

A semi and a car collided just before 3:30 p.m. Monday, directly east of the Chickasha airport. The crash caused a large fire and shut down traffic on all southbound lanes.

Bob Mills SkyNews 9 and pilot Jim Gardner flew over the scene as emergency crews sprayed the burning semi with foam to put out the fire. 

At least one person was killed, but the victim's identity has not been released. It's also not known what caused the crash.

The OHP opened one lane of traffic about an hour after the crash. All lanes reopened just before 7:30 p.m.
