Chickasha, OK – 2 Oklahoma teens killed in Grady County accident

CHICKASHA, Okla. (AP) Authorities say two Chickasha teenagers were killed and one was injured when their vehicle ran off a Grady County road.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 17-year-old Matthew Hoskins and 15-year-old Evan Raasch died when the vehicle crashed into a tree on Thursday.

Troopers say 15-year-old Briana Hoskins, was thrown about 92 feet from the point of impact, survived and was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City where she was listed in good condition.

The patrol says it appears Matthew Hoskins was driving at a high rate of speed and veered off the road for unknown reasons. He died at the scene, and Raasch died at OU Medical Center.
