A Stillwater man died of injuries suffered in a collision that occurred about 1:45 p.m. Monday on U.S. 177, just north of Lone Chimney Road, about three and a half miles north of Stillwater in Payne County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports Thomas Myers, 24, was transported by LifeNet to Stillwater Medical Center where he was pronounced dead due to internal trunk injuries.
