Authorities are still investigating what happened to cause a two-vehicle accident near Lindsay killing an Arkansas man this week.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol report shows the collision came at just after 6:30 a.m. Friday, April 12 at a site about two miles south of Lindsay in far western Garvin County.

A Lindsay man, Damon Combs, 40, was alone while driving a pickup southbound on state Highway 76.

Driving a 2012 Nissan Xterra was 44-year-old Thomas Powell of Mena, Ark.

The vehicle driven by Powell, who was alone while driving northbound on the same highway, crossed the center line where it struck the oncoming truck.

Troopers report both vehicles went off the east side of the roadway as Powell's car rolled one quarter time coming to rest on its right side.

Combs, who was reported to be wearing seat belts, was taken by a Lindsay E.M.S. ambulance to Lindsay Municipal Authority, where he was treated and released with arm and leg injuries.

Powell was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers report he was not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

For now the cause of the wreck is still officially being investigated.
