MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) – There are no injuries after an estimated 15-foot chunk of concrete was knocked from an interstate retaining wall onto a Midwest City street during an accident on Interstate 40.

Police Chief Brandon Clabes estimates the chunk fell about 15 feet before crashing onto the eastbound lanes of SE 29 street shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Paul Timmons says there were also no injuries as a result of the automobile crash on I-40. He said that the inside, westbound, lane of the interstate will be closed until sometime Monday while the Oklahoma Department of Transportation replaces the barrier wall.
