UPDATE: Authorities are releasing more information about a wreck that claimed the life of an Oklahoma teenager.

Officials say 18-year-old Logan Rosado-Santoni died in the accident that blocked off Sooner Rd. on Friday afternoon.

According to the accident report, Rosado- Santoni’s vehicle drifted across the center line into southbound traffic.

A car swerved out of the way and was grazed by Rosado- Santoni’s vehicle.

His car then hit a truck, ripping out the truck’s transmission, before hitting another vehicle.

That blow forced Rosado- Santoni’s vehicle to become airborne.

His car then struck another car while in the air.

It came to rest upside down in a ditch off the west side of Sooner Rd.

Officers say Santoni did not appear to have been wearing a seatbelt.

He died at the scene.
