STILWATER, Okla. (AP) -- A Pawnee County man has died of injuries he suffered when his pickup truck crashed near Stillwater.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Frederick Ryan died shortly after midnight at a Stillwater hospital.

Troopers say Ryan was injured just before 8 Sunday night when he apparently went to sleep at the wheel of his truck and it ran off US Highway 177 then hit a concrete culvert and rolled onto its top.

Ryan's wife Misty was treated and released for minor injuries.
