PITTSBURG COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to a serious accident on Highway 270 in Pittsburg County Thursday afternoon.
Around 3:30 p.m., 53-year-old Douglas Sumners was driving a 2013 Kenworth semi with Don Luper, 52, riding on top of the truck's load.
Troopers said Luper was trying to raise a cable line over the roadway so the semi could pass underneath it, when he accidentally touched an electrical line and was shocked.
Luper was taken to Hillcrest Medical Center in critical condition.
