A 34-year-old man from Moore died Friday afternoon when the tread came off his tire while driving on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says just before 5 p.m. on May 25, Jamie Dwayne Rhoads was driving west on Interstate 44 in Chickasha when the tread suddenly separated from a tire on his 1999 Ford F-150. Rhoads lost control and struck a guardrail.

The pickup truck rolled twice before stopping. OHP says he was not wearing a seatbelt. Rhoads was pinned inside the wreckage for about 30 minutes before emergency medical crews from Chickasha freed him.

Rhoads was flown by Mediflight to OU Medical Center where he died from head and internal injuries.
