OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Interstate 40 in eastern Oklahoma reopened after it had been closed earlier in the day because smoke from a grass fire blew over the road and caused vehicle crashes that left one person dead and eight others injured. Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman Paul Timmons says three wrecks involving nine vehicles were reported on the interstate about 90 miles east of Oklahoma City as motorists attempted to drive through the smoke.
