A Stigler teen was killed in a three-vehicle crash Monday in Haskell County. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the fatality wreck took place around 8 a.m. on State Highway 19 just east of Whitefield.

The 16-year-old victim was driving a pickup eastbound on the highway when his truck crossed the center line and hit a semi truck in the side, according to OHP.

The teenage driver, who was not identified due to his age, was thrown from the truck and killed. He was not wearing a seat belt. A 12-year-old male passenger, who was also not belted in, was flown to a Tulsa hospital.

He is said to be stable with head injuries, a trooper's report states.

The semi truck driver was not injured. A third vehicle hit debris from the wreck, and that driver refused treatment at the scene.
