A Stilwell man died Thursday in a single-vehicle crash on a rain-slick highway, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Emergency responders pronounced Shawn Braun, 49, dead at the scene about 6 miles west of Stilwell.

Braun was driving a 2003 Chevrolet pickup west on Oklahoma 100 when the wreck occurred. Troopers said in their report that it was raining at the time and that the vehicle ran off the left side of the road on a curve, went into a ditch and overturned.

Braun was not wearing a safety belt and was partially ejected, according to the report.

Troopers attributed the collision to unsafe speed on a wet roadway.
