The weather may be to blame for a fatal accident in Rogers County overnight.  Shortly after midnight, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the driver of a pickup truck ran off the road on Pine near state Highway 66. 

Troopers say the vehicle went left of center, overcorrected to the right and crashed.  The driver, 46-year-old Johnnie Bryan of Catoosa was rushed to a Tulsa hospital.  He is listed in stable condition. 

A passenger in the pickup truck, 45-year-old Clark Replogle of Catoosa died at the scene. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol continues to investigate the accident. 

Another traffic accident early Thursday morning slowed traffic on the Broken Arrow Expressway in Tulsa.  Tulsa Police say a vehicle was eastbound on the BA at 15th Street, when the back end of the vehicle spun out and the vehicle got stuck on the median. 

The woman driving the vehicle was not seriously hurt.
