OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma state troopers are trying to find a tractor-trailer they say lost a wheel assembly in Oklahoma City and caused multiple crashes, including one that left a driver dead.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the series of crashes happened shortly before 5 a.m. Monday on Interstate 40. Troopers who responded say they found a dead female in the cab of a pickup with extensive damage to the windshield driver side of the vehicle. Her name and age were not immediately available.

Troopers also found an overturned SUV and damage to BMW sedan they believe were caused by the loose wheel. The Highway Patrol also reported a semi on a road that passes under freeway was struck by a wheel that came off I-40.

The Highway Patrol is seeking witnesses or anyone who may have video of one or all of the crashes.
