OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A 23-year-old male died in a vehicle crash in Oklahoma County Friday morning.
The crash occurred Friday at approximately 6:27 a.m. on Interstate 40 eastbound, west of Peebly Road in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said Jake Sing of Guthrie, Okla., was transported to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and later pronounced dead due to injuries from the collision.
Officials said the other driver, a 49-year-old Porum, Okla., man, was treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City and has been released.
There were three vehicles involved in the crash.
OPH officials said a 2005 Subaru Outback was parked on the right shoulder of I-40 East.
