OKLAHOMA CITY – One person is dead following a rollover accident on the Turner Turnpike.

Around 12:30 p.m., emergency crews and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol were called to the westbound lanes of the Turner Turnpike, just west of Sooner Rd.

It appears that a white car lost control and rolled off the roadway.

The car hit the sign and finally came to rest in a grassy area next to the turnpike.

Officials say the driver of the vehicle died in the accident.

While the crash is not impeding traffic, drivers are encouraged to use caution in the area.
