Four people are dead after crashes on state roads.
A woman, whose name had not been released Thursday evening, died after she drove the wrong way in the westbound lanes of Interstate 40 near Morgan Road about 2 a.m. Thursday, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers said.
Her car hit a tractor-trailer head-on and caught fire. It took emergency crews more than six hours to remove the wreckage from the road and reopen all lanes of I-40.
