GRADY COUNTY, Okla. (KSWO) - A Lawton teenager lost their life following a crash on I-44 late Saturday night.

The two-vehicle wreck happened before midnight at mile marker 89 westbound, near Amber in Grady County.

Four people from Lawton, including two adults and two passengers under the age of 18, were riding in the first vehicle when a man driving a Dodge Ram at a high rate of speed struck the vehicle on the rear driver’s side, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The high rate of the collision caused the vehicle to leave the road and flip multiple times.

Medical Examiners pronounced a 13-year-old Lawton boy dead at the scene.

Two others in the vehicle went to the hospital, one in fair condition and the other in critical condition.

According to reports, the driver of the Ram suffered no injuries.

The cause of the wreck is still under investigation.
