GOODWELL, Okla. (AP) – A Goodwell man had died after crashing

his van into the back of a tractor-trailer that had stopped for

road construction in Texas County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 46-year-old Rodney O’Hara of

Goodwell died at the scene of the crash about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday

northwest of Goodwell.

The patrol says the big rig had stopped for road construction

along Highway 64 when O’Hara apparently failed to notice and

slammed into the back of the trailer. He was pinned inside the

wreckage for 45 minutes.

The driver of the truck – 26-year-old Alex Chea of Hart, Texas –

wasn’t injured.
