A number of vehicle collisions and rollovers happened Tuesday morning after light rain slicked roadways, said Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials.

Both northbound lanes of Highway 75 in Okmulgee County were closed due to a jack-knifed tractor trailer. Interstate 35 northbound at southeast 15 St. in Oklahoma County was blocked due to an accident involving a freightliner. And both lanes of Interstate 40 were also closed while a wrecker service tried to flip over an overturned tractor-trailer.

Oklahoma Department of Transportation officials are advising drivers to be aware there could be slick spots on the roadways Tuesday morning into Wednesday.
