Third person dies from car accident due to icy road conditions

SEILING, Okla. - SEILING, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma authorities say an Arkansas man is the third person to die in an auto accident due to icy roads following a winter storm in the state.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 31-year-old Christian Manuel Mejia-Reyes of Hot Springs died Saturday afternoon when the van he was riding in went off icy U.S. 183 just north of Seiling and overturned.

A second person in the van was hospitalized in stable condition following the crash while four others in the van were treated and released.

Others killed in accidents on slick roadways in Oklahoma are a 16-year-old boy who died early Saturday after his car crashed and overturned on U.S. 64 near Tulsa and a woman was killed Friday night in a collision on a slick roadway in northwest Oklahoma City.
