ACME, OK (GRADY COUNTY) – One person was killed in a dramatic, fiery car accident west of Rush Springs early this morning, according to KFOR.

The accident happened in Acme, near the intersection of County Rd 2770 and SH-17 just after 5 a.m., when the driver of a 2007 Dodge failed to properly navigate a curve and went off the roadway. The driver then went back onto the roadway and over the center line, into the left lane.

The driver overcorrected, then rolled over multiple times as it went off the right side of the roadway once more.

The vehicle was aflame when a witness discovered the vehicle and the victim, who died at the scene.

The victim has not yet been publicly identified.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the accident at this time.
