    An Agra teenager was killed early Monday morning in a collision along SH 18 in Lincoln County.
    Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Miller’s report shows the accident occurred about 7:03 a.m., just south of County Road 800.
    Alexander W. Cagle, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, the patrol reported.
    Cagle was driving a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon northbound on SH 18 when his vehicle went left of center for unknown reasons, the trooper reported.
    The OHP said the driver of a southbound 2011 Dodge Ram swerved to the left while Cagle swerved to the right, resulting in his vehicle colliding with the pickup.
    Trooper Miller’s report shows Cagle, who died at the scene from injuries suffered in the accident, was pinned in the wreckage before being freed by Chandler firefighters using the Hurst tool. The patrol said he had no passengers.
    The driver of the Dodge Ram, Ryan C. White, 31, Drumright, and one of his passengers, Robert L. McNeal, 29, were not injured, the OHP said.
    Passenger Richard D. Ward, 32, Cushing, was taken from the scene by Medi Flight helicopter ambulance to OU Medical Center in Edmond, where he was admitted in good condition with head, internal and external trunk injuries, the OHP said.
    Passenger Isaac R. McGrew, 22, Cleveland, was taken by private vehicle to Hillcrest Hospital in Cushing, where he was treated for an arm injury and released, the report shows.
    Cause of the collision was listed as left of center in meeting, according to the trooper’s report. Seat belts were listed as being in use by both drivers.
    Assisting Trooper Miller at the scene was Trooper Josh Blue, as well as Lt. Troy German, along with the Agra and Tryon Police Departments.
