A 17-year-old girl is dead and five other teenagers were sent to the hospital after a late-night crash in an off-road vehicle.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say the crash happened around 10:45 p.m. Friday about two and a half miles west of Grove.

They say six teenage girls were riding in the six-seater off-road vehicle on a golf cart path when they lost control and flipped over. 17-year-old Avery Shannon was pronounced dead at the scene.

Four of the other five girls have been treated and released from the hospital. All six girls were members of the Pom Squad at Jenks High School, grief counselors will be at JHS when students on Tuesday.

A Go-Fund-Me page has been set up to assist the Shannon Family, so far over $30,000 has been donated.
