BROKEN BOW, OK (KSWO) - Flash flooding in the Sooner State is blamed for one man's death. 

Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 30-year-old Michael Liles and another man drove into a flooded low-water crossing near Broken Bow and their pickup was swept down a creek. Troopers say they both got out and the passenger was able to swim to shore. However, Liles went under water.

First responders found his body nearly two hours later about 100 yards down stream.
