PARK HILL — A 59-year-old Park Hill man died Saturday afternoon when his car crashed into the back of a pickup on State Highway 82.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers said Robert Hutchison was driving a 2005 Pontiac south when he struck a 2007 Chevy truck that was stopped to turn left. Hutchison was pinned and extricated by the Keys Fire Department. Troopers said Hutchison was taken to Tahlequah City Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

The driver of the truck, 40-year-old Steven Springwater, of Park Hill, was treated and released with minor injuries. Two 15-year-old passengers in Springwater’s truck were also treated and released, the OHP reported.

According to troopers, Hutchison was not wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred.

The cause of the crash is considered to be under investigation.
