The driver of a semi died on Saturday after the truck he was driving flew off the road traveling south on US 69 just inside McIntosh County, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Pietro Zambuto, 64, of Port St. Lucie, Florida was driving a 2019 Kenworth on the highway around 7 a.m. around six miles north of Checotah when his truck left the road for an unknown reason. The semi became airborne and slammed into a culvert under the road. Zambuto was pinned in the cab of the semi for five hours while rescue services tried to extricate him.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and emergency crews spent the rest of the day working on the wreckage. The cause of the wreck has not yet been determined.
