AFTON, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a man from Western New York was killed when the car he was driving on the Will Rogers Turnpike collided with a tractor-trailer.

Police say 42-year-old Siarhei Kisliuk of Tonawanda died in the Thursday morning accident near Afton in northeastern Oklahoma. The driver of the tractor-trailer, 44-year-old Charles Tanner of Miami, Oklahoma, was not injured.

A police report said Kisliuk was pinned for more than an hour after the accident, which took place in the westbound lanes. Investigators said it appeared Kisliuk’s vehicle ran into the rear of the truck.
