ANADARKO, OK -- Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say a 21-year-old Oklahoma man killed in a crash was distracted by his iPod.

Trooper Daniel Moreno says 21-year-old Robert A. Yackeyonny of Anadarko was eastbound on US 62 when he failed to negotiate a curve and crashed head on into a westbound truck driven by 35-year-old Clint W. Courtney of Ft. Cobb.  It appears Yackeyonny was distracted by his iPod.

Courtney was treated and released from an Anadarko hospital.  Yackeyonny was trapped in the wreckage for nearly two and a half hours and died at the scene.

The wreck happened just before 8:30 Friday morning.
