CHEROKEE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A teenager is dead after the car she was driving crossed the center line and struck an SUV head-on Monday morning.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the crash happened just before 8 a.m. on State Highway 82 in Cherokee County, about 8 miles north of Tahlequah.

Troopers say Caitlyn Brooke Mathis was northbound on Highway 82 in a 2000 Chrysler when the vehicle went left of center for an unknown reason.  Mathis, 19, struck a southbound 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by 30-year-old Michael Singleton of Hulbert, the OHP says.

Mathis was pronounced dead at the scene, and Singleton was flown by medical helicopter to a Tulsa hospital. He is listed in serious condition.

Mathis attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah and was a member of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority.

The OHP says she was not wearing her seat belt and was ejected from her car upon impact.

According to the OHP Mathis was from Sapulpa, but other sources say she was from Kiefer.
