A Pampa, Texas man was killed six miles east of Checotah on I-40 after the bicycle he was riding collided with an SUV on the highway at 3:05 p.m. today.

Cody Ellis, 31, was riding eastbound on the shoulder of the highway when he unexpectedly entered the lane of traffic where a 2016 GMS Sierra driven by Brittany Booth, 28, of Wister, was driving.

Ellis was ejected 240 feet from the wreck.

He was pronounced dead at Saint Francis Hospital in Muskogee with head, trunk internal and external injuries.
