Ark. man crashes in Tulsa Co. after heart attack

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say an Arkansas man died after he apparently suffered a heart attack while driving with his 3-year-old granddaughter in Tulsa County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 62-year-old Roger Dale Jones of Paris, Ark., was pronounced dead after the single-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon on U.S. 412 near Tulsa. His granddaughter was not injured.

A preliminary report says Jones was driving west on the highway when he suffered an apparent heart attack. His truck crashed into a cable barrier in the median of the highway.

Authorities say Jones was taken to St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, where he was pronounced dead from the heart attack.
