FAIRFAX, OK – A 14-year-old girl was injured after crashing into an embankment on August 29, Pawhuska Journal-Capital reports.

Investigators believe the teen was driving a Nissan Altima on State Hwy 18, about 2 miles north of Fairfax, when she took a turn too fast and left the roadway. She then over-corrected, causing her vehicle to leave the roadway again and crash into an embankment.

The impact caused the vehicle to roll over, pinning the teen inside. She was extricated by the Fairfax Fire Department around 7:50 p.m. and transported to St. Francis Hospital in critical condition.
