THACKERVILLE, Okla. (AP) – Northbound lanes of the Interstate 35 bridge over the Red River at the Oklahoma-Texas state line have reopened after being closed for nearly five hours.

The number of cattle was not immediately available, but the OHP reported several head had escaped the trailer and ran loose on the interstate before being captured.

Details of the collision were not immediately released, but the OHP said there are injuries.

The lanes reopened to traffic shortly before 6 a.m.
