SHAWNEE, OK – A young Shawnee man died early this morning in a rollover crash and was not discovered until about eight hours later, according to KFOR.

Landon Elliott, 18, died about 2:30 a.m. near North Harrison Avenue, just outside of Shawnee. He and his vehicle, a Volkswagen Jetta, were found just before 10:20 a.m.

Elliott was driving westbound on Moccasin Trail and failed to stop at a stop sign, then continued through a ditch. His car went over the curb and hit several trees in the process. The vehicle rolled over an unspecified number of times.

He was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash but was still ejected from the vehicle.
