The OHP says a 13-year-old girl from Claremore wasn't hurt when the SUV she was driving ran off a Rogers County road and rolled overnight. 

The 1998 Chevy Blazer ran off East 410 Road about a half mile east of Highway 66 at 2:48 a.m., according the OHP.

Troopers say a passenger, Virginia Pinkston, 36, of Claremore was seriously hurt in the crash.  The Oklahoma Highway Patrol report states the driver was distracted when Pinkston, who was intoxicated, was hanging her head out a window. 

A 15-year-old Claremore girl in the SUV wasn't injured. Neither were two other passengers; Dylan Hedges, 22, and Matt Lewis. The OHP says both men had left the scene by time troopers arrived. 

The report stated the only one wearing a seat belt in the SUV was the driver.
