Robbins died after having a heart attack while behind the wheel, which caused him to leave the road, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

About 3:15 p.m. Friday, Robbins was driving east on State Highway 9 in McIntosh County near Hanna when he suffered an apparent heart attack, lost control of his sport utility vehicle, left the road to the right and crashed through a fence.

Robbins died at the scene.

Hickman died after a wreck in Grady County on Saturday.

About 2:50 p.m., she was driving a pickup eastbound on U.S. 62 when she slowed to turn left on a county road, troopers said. A man driving an eastbound vehicle hit her pickup from behind, and a westbound vehicle drove over debris from the wreck.
