One person is dead following traffic accident on I-244

Updated:
An early Tuesday morning traffic accident kills one person on I-244.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say the man was speeding. They say two vehicles may have been street racing while headed northbound on the Interstate.

That's when one driver had a problem when he swerved to avoid another car. OHP trooper Sheridan O'Neal: “lost control went into a slide and rotated 180 degrees and struck a semi trailer in the rear.”

The Highway Patrol says the driver, who was in his late teen to early 20's, died instantly. The truck driver was 'not' hurt.

Troopers say the second driver who was racing, kept going and has not been found.
