A call to a truck driver's cell phone led Harvey County authorities to close a section of I-135 for several hours.

The truck driver called 911 Monday evening, claiming a call he received on his cell phone indicated an explosive was hooked to his truck. The driver pulled off the northbound lanes on I-135.

Harvey County Deputies arrived and were told there was a suspicious box in the cab of the truck.

The Wichita bomb squad responded to the scene. For safety measures, both north and south bound lanes of 1-35 were closed and traffic was diverted. The truck was searched and no
explosive devices were found. The interstate was reopened to normal traffic at 2:15 AM.
