Several rounds of thunderstorms through Saturday will have the potential to produce flooding rains, and a few isolated hail cores or strong winds are possible. Never drive into flooded areas...turn around, don't drown!
2-11-06 - ORIENTA, Okla. (AP) - A Texas man is killed after colliding head on with a tractor-trailer on a bridge over the Cimarron River in Major County.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 59-year-old Floyd Martin Gentry of Denison, Texas, was pronounced dead at the scene of last night's crash.
The patrol says Gentry was driving westbound on US Highway 60 when his pickup went left of center and slammed head on into a semi driven by Robert Thornton of Enid. Thornton wasn't injured.
Gentry was pinned inside his truck for about an hour before being pulled from the vehicle. US 60 was closed for more than four hours.
