Checotah, Okla. -- Authorities are searching for the driver of a minivan, accused of hitting and killing a 17-year-old girl over the weekend.

Crystal Strange and a friend were taking pictures in the middle of Texanna Road near Interstate 40 at about 8:30 p.m. on Friday near Checotah, in McIntosh County. A white Chevy minivan with tinted windows hit Strange, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers said. A friend with Strange Friday night said she was still alive after the collision, but died later from her injuries.
