1 Killed in Pickup Truck, Tractor-Trailer Crash Near Pawnee


 The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Pawhuska man was killed when the pickup truck he was riding in collided with a tractor-trailer rig near Pawnee.

The OHP says 24-year-old Andrew Thomas died in the crash Thursday on State Highway 18.

An OHP report says the semi was northbound when the driver made a left turn into a convenience store parking lot and the southbound pickup crashed into the trailer of the rig.

The driver of the pickup and another passenger were both hospitalized in critical condition while the driver of the semi was not injured.

The report says the weather was cloudy and the road was dry at the time of the crash.
