A man is dead after a fatal collision accident in Cotton County on Tuesday morning.

The accident happened on State Highway 53 and County Road 2690, that’s 7 miles east of Walters, Oklahoma.

A trooper on scene said a garbage truck was northbound on County Road 2690, stopped at State Highway 53 and attempted to turn eastbound.
