INDIAHOMA, OK (KSWO) -A man is dead after his pickup truck slammed into the back of a dump truck near Indiahoma Wednesday morning.

According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 35-year-old Russell Lycett of Snyder was traveling west on U.S. 62 around 7:48 a.m. Wednesday. The crash happened about a half mile west of Post Oak Road.
