Fatality Accident in Owasso Claims Life of Teen – Two Others Injured

02/07/2019 – As we reported yesterday,  a 16 year old girl died when the car she was driving hit a tree near 18500 East 96th Street North near Dover Pond.


Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that the 2005 Honda Accord was heading west on 96th Street at a high rate of speed when it ran off the road and hit two trees.

There were three teens in the car. The driver, 16, who died after being ejected from the vehicle on impact. Two others, both 15-year-old girls, one of those the drivers younger sister.

If you have driven that section of 96th Street you know it has hills, is narrow and has no shoulders which could cause issues while driving.  OHP has listed “speed” as the cause of the accident.

OHP reported that the passengers were wearing seat belts but the driver was not, resulting in her being thrown from the car.

We have learned that the sister of the driver is banged up and bruised but doing well. At the time of this report, she did not yet know about the fate of her sister.  We also learned that the other 15-year-old passenger suffered a lower leg amputation as a result of the accident and is still in critical condition.

This morning, Owasso school counselors will be available for students and staff at Owasso High School on both campuses.
