Law enforcement officials in Eastern Oklahoma say a 41-year-old Sallisaw Man is dead after a motorcycle accident near Vian on interstate 40 that occurred Friday night. 

A report from the Oklahoma Highway patrol says that 41-year-old Jonathan Walters was eastbound on Interstate 40 in the vicinity of marker 295 just after 8:30 p.m. Friday night.
