Elgin man dies in single-car accident

ELGIN Okla_ A car accident left an Elgin man dead in Grady County.

Authorities say an Elgin man was south bound on I-44 at the H.E. Bailey Turnpike when his vehicle ran off the road to the right and struck a concrete drainage ditch. The vehicle then traveled up the wall of a bridge and flipped over onto its top.

The vehicle slid upside down for about 45 feet before coming to a rest and catching fire. The driver was ejected through the windshield and died at the scene from his injuries.

Officials are uncertain at this time what caused the accident.
