TECUMSEH, Okla. (AP) - A Maud man was killed after he crashed into a trailer that came loose from another vehicle on state Highway 9 near Tecumseh.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 83-year-old Raymond Taylor died Monday when his Dodge Dakota pickup truck collided with the trailer around 2:15 p.m.

The highway patrol says the trailer came loose from a vehicle headed the opposite direction, and Taylor couldn't avoid it as he was heading west toward Tecumseh.
