VINITA, Okla. - A Vinita woman was killed in a Craig County accident early Sunday.
Highway patrol troopers say 46-year-old Shelly Long died at a Vinita hospital just after 4 a.m. Sunday.
Long was driving a car about 2 miles south of Vinita when the car left the road, struck a guardrail and went off a bridge. The car rolled onto its top in a creek bed, submerging the vehicle.
Long was pinned inside the car for about 25 minutes.
A 22-year-old passenger was treated and released from a local hospital.
Troopers list alcohol as the cause of the crash.

Many people were able to survive and ride out the tornado thanks to storm shelters. Now there's talk of mandating that they be installed in homes.
