The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has reopened all lanes of westbound Interstate 240 between Sooner and Air Depot following a Tuesday morning pileup that sent a motorcyclist to the hospital.

The accident happened just before 6 a.m. Troopers say there was a car parked on the outside lane. Other cars swerved to avoid it, and that led to a collision between several vehicles.

A motorcyclist was also involved in the crash. An ambulance rushed him to a hospital, where he's listed in critical condition.

Westbound traffic was squeezed to one lane for more than an hour, but the wreckage was cleared and all lanes reopened just after 7 a.m.

Troopers say they are still searching for one more vehicle that may have been involved in the accident, but they have not released a description of that car.
