CLEVELAND, OK – A 48-year-old man died on Monday, and another man went to the hospital after two vehicles collided at a busy Cleveland intersection.

According to Fox 23 News, the incident happened around 7:30 a.m. at the intersection of US-64 and OK-48, which is just northwest of Keystone Lake RV Park.

Police say that an eastbound 2012 GMC Sierra neglected to yield the right of way at a stop sign and was struck by a southbound 2017 Ford F250.

The collision forced the Sierra off of the highway and caused it to overturn. Authorities pronounced the driver, identified as Anthony Price, deceased at the scene.

Additionally, medics transported a male passenger from the Sierra to the hospital with critical injuries.

The driver of the Ford did not sustain injuries in the crash.

A full investigation is underway.
