According to a Chickasha man died in a two-vehicle accident in Blaine County.

Per the authorities, the now deceased Leon Smith was driving a tractor-trailer loaded with hay bales south on State Highway 8, about four miles south of Hitchcok, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Smith tried to negotiate a curve at a high rate of speed when the tractor-trailer rolled on its side, stopping on the northbound lane of the highway, troopers said.
