One person is dead following a crash on the Turner Turnpike Tuesday morning near Luther, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

OHP said a vehicle driven by 23-year-old Osvaldo Aguilar was traveling the wrong way in the westbound lanes of the Turner Turnpike around 1:30 a.m. when they were struck by a semi-truck traveling westbound.

Aguilar was trapped in the vehicle for about 45 minutes until he was freed by the Wellston and Luther fire departments using the Jaws of Life, OHP said.

The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.
