Two-vehicle crash ties up traffic in Lawton

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)-A two-vehicle crash tied up traffic on a busy stretch of roadway in Lawton Monday night, but police say everyone involved is okay.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. on Gore Boulevard at Lawrie Tatum Road.

Police say a mini-van was going north on Lawrie Tatum when an SUV heading south failed to yield while turning left onto Gore Boulevard and hit the van.

Fortunately, Lawton Police Department says nobody was hurt. Officers had to shut down one lane of Gore Boulevard in both directions while they worked the crash.

That backed up traffic about half-a-mile each way.
