Lappin was driving a 2004 Chevy Colorado east on Old 21 Road. The vehicle failed to negotiate a turn and went off the left side of the road. It then went into a broadslide and rolled one-and-a-half times before coming to rest on its top. Lappin was ejected during the crash, according to OHP.
Two other passengers, a 36-year-old woman and seven-year-old girl, both from Idabel, were also in the vehicle. The 36 year old is listed as stable at McCurtain Memorial. The seven year old was treated and released from the hospital.
