HENRYETTA, OK (OKMULGEE COUNTY) – A man from Oklahoma City died after being pinned inside his vehicle for over two hours following a crash in Okmulgee County this morning, according to KTUL.

The accident happened on westbound I-40 near Henryetta when 37-year-old Oklahoma City man Leslye Moyd lost control of his vehicle.

The vehicle went off the left side of the roadway, and Moyd overcorrected the vehicle, which caused it to roll over multiple times before colliding with a tree.

The car came to a stop on the left side of the vehicle, pinning Moyd within the wreckage for about two hours.

Despite fire officials using the jaws of life to extricate him, Moyd died at the scene. His cause of death is listed as severe internal injuries.

No other injuries were reported in the collision, which continues to be investigated at this time.
