GRADY COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities are investigating a deadly crash in Grady County that claimed the life of a teenager.
Shortly before midnight on Sept. 24, troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol were called to an accident along the H.E. Bailey Turnpike near Amber.
Investigators say a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 was traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on I-44 before crashing into the back of a Toyota Highlander.
The impact forced the Highlander off of the road, causing it to roll multiple times before coming to rest.
Officials say the driver, a male passenger, and a 12-year-old were all taken to an Oklahoma City hospital for treatment.
Sadly, a 13-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
The driver of the Dodge Ram was not injured.
