Posted: Updated:

Winds wreaked havoc across Texoma Wednesday night causing quite the headache for some drivers.  Powerful winds caused a tractor trailer to cave in on itself, forcing authorities to close down lanes on Hwy 287.
    
Around 11 p.m., traffic was down to one lane on the northbound side of the highway near Iowa Park. The Department of Public Safety, Wichita County Sheriff's Deputies and Iowa Park Police all responded to the scene.

No injuries were reported.
