Four teenagers in a Ford truck were involved in a rollover crash early Sunday morning in rural southwest Tulsa County. The wreck took place at about 1:30 a.m. on Dip Creek Road near Coyote Trail, west of Sand Springs.

"Arrived on scene, was notified we had four injuries: all teenagers, two females and two males," said Trooper Chance Tuttle with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

"Three were transported by way of EMSA, and one - the driver - by Life Flight," Tuttle said.

The truck was northbound on Dip Creek road at a high rate of speed when it left the highway, took out a fence and rolled about three times, he said. None of the teens was wearing a seat belt, according to the collision report.

Two were ejected from the pickup: 18-year-old Mallory Majors of Durant and a juvenile Sand Springs male whose name is being withheld. Both were taken to a Tulsa hospital where they were said to be stable.

The driver, 18-year-old Austin Smith of Sand Springs, is in critical condition at a Tulsa hospital, a report states. The remaining passenger, a minor female whose name was not released but is from Jenks, is also said to be stable.

"We believe some speed and alcohol was involved," Tuttle told News On 6 at the scene.
