Head-on crash claims Texas man

ADA, Okla. (AP) - A sport-utility vehicle slammed head-on into a tractor trailer east of Ada, killing the driver of the SUV.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 56-year-old Robert Jent of Richardson, Texas, was taken to an Ada hospital, where he died.

The patrol says Jent was westbound on State Highway 3 just before 11 a.m. Tuesday when his 2007 GMC Yukon crossed the center line and slammed into a 2001 Kenworth tractor trailer. Jent was pinned inside the wreckage for an hour before firefighters freed him.

The driver of the big rig wasn't injured.
