Will Rogers Turnpike Pileup

{UPDATE (Saturday AM): All lanes of traffic are now back open on the turnpike, per KTUL-TV in Tulsa.}

News has come this evening that nine people have been killed and several (the number varies based on the news site you are looking at) have been injured in a pileup on I-44, the Will Rogers Turnpike, near Miami, OK. Even at this hour only lane of the interstate is open in the eastbound direction, although the state police believe the other lane will reopen soon.

The accident apparently happened when a semi slammed into a line of cars that had stopped for a previous accident on the interstate. KOAM-TV sent a videographer to the scene and has video of the crash site. You may click here to access it.
