HEAVENER, Okla. (AP) _ An Arkansas teenager has died in a one-car crash in eastern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Shawn Adam Boggs of Waldron, Arkansas, was killed just before 10:30 Friday night in LeFlore County.

Troopers say Boggs was a passenger in a car that ran off State Highway 128 east of Heavener and hit a tree.

The driver of the car is hospitalized in stable condition and another passenger was treated and released.

In another accident, a Muldrow teenager was killed when the sport utility vehicle she was riding in overturned on a Sequoyah County road.

Troopers say 16-year-old Jessica Lee died from injuries she received in the accident about seven miles north of Muldrow just before 1 P-M yesterday.

The patrol says the teen's mother -- Nora Lee -- was driving the vehicle north on the road when it went out control and overturned three times, throwing the mother and daughter from the wreckage.

Nora Lee is in serious condition at a Fort Smith, Arkansas, hospital.

Troopers say neither occupant was wearing a seat belt.
