WOODWARD COUNTY, Okla. -

A single-vehicle rollover accident resulted in a man dead and two others uninjured early Sunday morning.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, three men were riding in a truck westbound on County Road 42 in Woodward County when the driver decided to hit the accelerator.
