One dead following crash caused by high winds on I-40

EL RENO, OK (KSWO)- A truck driver is dead after a crash caused by extreme winds on an Oklahoma interstate.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the driver was heading east on I-40 near El Reno when winds pushed the truck into the cable barrier and caused it to roll.

Troopers say the driver, who has not been identified, was partially ejected through the driver side window and was pinned for about an hour. The medical examiner says the person died at the scene.
