HESSTON, Kan. (AP) _ A section of interstate near Wichita is reopened after a bomb squad investigated the cargo in a truck.

Interstate 135 between Hesston and North Newton was closed for six hours overnight after a trucker reported he had received a call about suspicious materials in his semi-trailer. The trucker says he parked his vehicle and called 911 after receiving the call Monday evening.

KWCH reports it was unclear early Tuesday if anything was found in the truck.

The Harvey County Sheriff's office says the trucker was driving for Hobby Lobby on a route from Oklahoma to Colorado.
