Two people are dead after crashes on state roads, and a third died while working on his tractor-trailer, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

About 10:45 a.m. Sunday, Gardner was trying to fix the passenger side rear trailer brake on his tractor-trailer at the Candle Light Inn, 8241 S U.S. 69, in Savanna, Pittsburg County. The brake had frozen to the wheel because of cold weather. Gardner crawled under the rig to try to free the wheel. When the brake released, the rig rolled over him.

Gardner was taken to a hospital in McAlester where he died, troopers said.

About 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Hill was driving east on State Highway 51 in Payne County near Lake Carl Blackwell. Her car went off the road on a curve and slid into a tree.

Hill, who was wearing a seat belt, died at the scene, troopers said.

Jeanine Barrett, 62, Owasso,

About 4 p.m. Saturday, Barrett was driving west on Will Rogers Turnpike about six miles west of Adair in Mayes County. Her vehicle crashed into a stalled vehicle that had been involved in another crash on the roadway.

Barrett, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to a hospital in Pryor where she died, troopers said.
