The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says one person has died in a head-on crash on Highway 48 in Creek County early Monday.

Troopers said Russell Foutch, 47 of Cushing, was driving his 2007 Dodge truck northbound and for an unknown reason crossed over into the southbound lanes hitting a 2012 Ford truck driven by Tilman Palmer, 76.

Palmer died in the crash. Foutch was taken to the hospital in serious condition with injuries to his head, mid-section, arm and legs.
