Okmulgee County Fatality

BEGGS, Okla. (AP) - An unidentified man has died after a rollover crash on an Okmulgee County highway.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the accident happened just before midnight Sunday on State Highway 16.

Troopers say the pickup drifted off the left side of the road and struck an embankment before overturning 1½ times and coming to rest on its top with its undercarriage on fire.

Troopers say an Okmulgee County Sheriff's deputy and a Beggs police officer pulled the unconscious driver from the vehicle and placed him in an ambulance, but the man died a short time later.
