A Cleveland teen was killed on icy highway early Saturday morning. Brock Norton, 16, called his family to say he was on his way home after seeing a movie in Tulsa. When he didn’t return home his family became worried and called the police, according to Newson6.com on Dec. 21.

Police found Norton’s pickup truck down an embankment at 12:45 a.m., about an hour and a half after he had the accident. The pickup had gone through a guard rail, flipped and down an embankment. The accident happened on the westbound side of Highway 412, not far 177th Street.

Police found the pickup and then located Norton, who had been thrown from the vehicle during the accident. His body was “ejected quite a distance from his vehicle," said Trooper Matthew Middleton. Norton was taken to a Tulsa hospital, but his injuries were too severe for him to survive. He died at the hospital.

Police report that the roads were wet and icy at the time of the accident and speed was a contributing factor. Norton was not wearing a seat belt, which very well might have saved his life.
