CUSHING, Okla. - A 15-year-old Oklahoma girl was killed and five other teens were injured in a tragic crash over the weekend.

On Sunday, around 3:20 a.m., a 16-year-old girl was driving near Cushing with five other teens, including another 16-year-old girl, two 17-year-old girls, a 17-year-old boy and the 15-year-old girl.

Officials believe the teen driver was speeding.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, the driver turned off her headlights, the vehicle ran a stop sign and went airborne for a short distance while driving through an intersection.

When the vehicle landed, the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled an unknown amount of times.

The 16-year-old driver and the 16-year-old passenger in the vehicle had seat belts on during the accident.  They were both treated and released from the hospital.

However, officials said the other four occupants in the vehicle did not have their seat belts on during the crash. OHP officials said the four teens without a seat belt on were ejected while the vehicle rolled.

Three of those teens were admitted to the hospital in serious condition.

The 15-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene due to massive injuries.

"Shock. Disbelief," said Janene Fisher, the choir teacher for Agra High School. "You know, how such a vibrant, such a beautiful soul is not here anymore is just unfathomable."

"We are all in this together, and here to support each other and be with each other, so the community outpouring has been tremendous," said Brent Meeks, superintendent for the school district.

OHP officials have not released the identity of any of the teens.
