A 51-year-old McAlester man was killed Monday afternoon when his pickup collided with a tractor-trailer rig in Hughes County. Danny Cloud was pronounced dead on the scene of the accident that occurred about 4:15 p.m. one mile west of Stuart on U.S. Highway 270, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol accident report.

Cloud’s pickup went left of center, hit the semi and became lodged under it. He was pinned for two hours.

The semi was driven by 59-year-old Anthony Wayne Green of McAlester. Green was pinned for 1 ½ hours and was taken to McAlester Regional Hospital with arm and back injuries. He is listed in good condition.

Neither Green nor Cloud wore a seatbelt or had any passengers, troopers say.Source
