SPIRO, Okla. (AP) - Authorities say a Stigler man was killed when he was run over by a semi while he was beneath the vehicle greasing the drivetrain.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 45-year-old Claud Hale died in the accident Tuesday on private property near Spiro.

An OHP report says another man arrived at the parking lot and found the semi running, but not hooked up to the trailer and did not see Hale under the rig, thinking instead Hale was inside a building.

The report says the man got into the rig to hook it to the trailer and backed up over Hale.
