ELGIN, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says westbound lanes of Interstate 44 at the Elgin exit just north of Lawton have reopened after being closed for nearly three hours because of automobile crashes in foggy conditions.

The patrol reports the area was covered with heavy fog at the time of the crashes Tuesday morning and that there is at least one injury. Other details were not released.

The interstate - also known as the H.E. Bailey Turnpike - was closed after the first crash shortly before 6 a.m. The second occurred just after 6:30 a.m. and the third was before 8 a.m.

The interstate reopened just before 9 a.m.
