A Seminole man died Thursday when the van he was riding in struck an embankment.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the crash occurred about 2:11 p.m. on County Road NS 3550, just south of EW 1270 in Seminole County.

A 2004 Chevy Venture driven by Miriah Lena, 23, of Seminole, was southbound on NS 3550 when the vehicle departed the roadway to the right and struck an embankment.

Lena was pinned for about 45 minutes before being freed by the Seminole Fire Department. She was taken by Air Evac to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where she was admitted in stable condition with multiple injuries.

Her passenger, Lee Tilley, 33, Seminole, died at the scene from multiple injuries, the OHP said.

Cause of the collision is listed as pending investigation. Seat belts were equipped but not in use, the patrol said.
