SNYDER, Okla. (AP) — A Lawton man has been killed and an Indiahoma woman critically injured when the motorcycle they were riding crashed into a pickup truck near Snyder in Kiowa County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Kenneth Rhoads was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital following the crash about 12:10 a.m. Thursday. Troopers say 29-year-old Jodi Trotter is hospitalized in Lawton in critical condition.

Investigators say the two were westbound on US Highway 62 when the southbound pickup truck on a county road failed to yield and pulled into the path of the motorcycle. Two people in the pickup were not injured.
