Police have identified the victim as 17-year-old Kittrick Johnson Jr., a senior at Midwest City High School.
The accident is still under investigation, but early reports indicate that Johnson was driving westbound on NE 10th when a white Chevy Impala driven by 63-year-old James Griffith made an improper left turn and pulled out in front of Johnson.
