The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 11-year-old boy has died from injuries in Saturday's wreck near Oologah.

Troopers say the boy is the second person to die from the wreck. 32-year-old Angela Brown was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Troopers say a Pontiac Firebird carrying four people from Collinsville was traveling west on Highway 88 over the dam around 4 p.m Saturday. They say the vehicle took a curve too fast, left the roadway and rolled several times down an embankment

Troopers say a 6-year-old boy was taken to the Tulsa hospital in stable condition. The driver, 34-year-old Eric Coager, was air lifted to the hospital in serious condition.

OHP says the 6-year-old boy and the driver were both pinned under the vehicle for 45 minutes. Firefighters from the Northwest Fire Department used the jaws of life to free them.

Troopers say the driver smelled of alcohol. They say the unsafe speed of the curve caused the crash and only the driver and a backseat passenger had their seat belts on.
