A Dale, Oklahoma man was killed Sunday after being hit by a pick-up truck in Elk City.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 18-year-old Joshua Rogers was walking on Route 66 near St. Matthews Catholic Church when he, along with 18-year-old Jack Parker of Marshall, Arkansas, were hit by a 2004 Chevrolet pick-up driven by 33-year-old Landon Musick just after 8:00 p.m.

OHP says Rogers was pronounced dead at the scene after sustaining head, arms, legs, trunk internal, and trunk external injuries.
