SHADY POINT, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says three teenagers were killed and two others were critically injured when the pickup truck they were in crashed while being pursued by police in the Le Flore County town of Shady Point.

The OHP says the dead are a 17-year-old boy from Bokoshe; a 14-year-old boy from Bokoshe; and a 15-year-old girl from Heavener. The injured are two 17-year-old boys; one from Poteau and one from Panama. Their names were not released.

An OHP report says the truck was driven by the 17-year-old Bokoshe boy and being pursued by police about 1:30 a.m. Saturday when the truck went off a county road and rolled, then crashed into a tree.
