A tractor-truck between Chickasha and Newcastle on H.E. Bailey Turnpike rolled over Thursday morning and is slowing traffic, said authorities. No one was injured in the crash, said officials.

The truck rolled over at around mile marker 92 at about 3:40 a.m. Thursday morning. The vehicle blocked both northbound lanes of Interstate 44, also called H.E. Bailey Turnpike in that area, diverting traffic for about two hours.

Officials said they have the inside lane of I-44 back open, however, traffic is slow moving.

No word yet on the cause of the crash.
