OKLAHOMA CITY(AP) _ State troopers say a Manford man was killed when his pickup rolled multiple times and caught fire.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports that 49-year-old Greg A. Rasmussen died early Saturday morning after his vehicle ran off a roadway after he passed another car at a high speed.

His truck struck a mailbox and a metal pole before coming back onto the roadway, rolling four times and catching fire.
