The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Monday that one of the drivers involved in a crash that left an Osage County sheriff’s captain dead was only 14 years old.

Three vehicles were involved in the crash Friday morning at the intersection of Highways 60 and 18.

Osage County sheriff’s Capt. William Hargraves, 44, died in the crash. No one else was injured, according to the OHP.

The OHP said a 42-year-old woman was a passenger in the car driven by the teenager.

A 14-year-old Kansas girl was driving a 2008 Lexus, traveling southbound on OK-18, according to the OHP.

Hargraves, driving a Ford F-150, was traveling eastbound on US-60.

The Lexus struck Hargraves’ car, causing it to continue traveling until hitting a utility pole, OHP says.

A third vehicle, a Jeep Wrangler, driven by a 52-year-old Tulsa man, was also hit by the Lexus.

The cause of crash remains under investigation, according to the OHP.
