The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a teenager is dead after an accident in McIntosh County.

The accident happened just after 6 p.m. Saturday on the beach of Lake Eufaula.

Authorities said two 14-year-olds and a 13-year-old were cutting donuts in the sand by the lake when their Polaris Ranger overturned.

One of the 14-year-olds, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle. The vehicle also landed on the minor. He was transported to St. Francis Muskogee in critical condition but was pronounced dead upon arriving at St. Francis.

The other 14-year-old and 13-year-old riding in the vehicle, who were both wearing their seat belts, were not injured.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
