MIAMI, Okla. (AP) _ An early morning one-car accident near Miami has left one man dead.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Walentine Muritok of Miami was killed when the car he was riding in ran off State Highway Ten about 4:30 AM Wednesday.

Troopers say the car hit an embankment and was airborne for more than 100 feet before landing and rolling twice.

Muritok wasn't wearing a seat belt and was thrown nearly 25 feet from the car.

The driver of the car is hospitalized in fair condition.
