The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has reopened all lanes of westbound Interstate 40 at Douglas Boulevard following a crash early Wednesday morning.

A semi-truck crashed on westbound I-40 just before rush hour, shutting down all lanes and backing up traffic.  The semi was reportedly hauling food and much of it spilled on the roadway.

Around 9:30 a.m., OHP reopened one westbound lane.  By 11 a.m., all lanes had been reopened.

No one was seriously hurt in the accident.
