— The girl killed in a rollover accident Sunday afternoon in Bryan County was Abigail Jones, 9, according to Brown's Funeral Home in Durant.

The girl died at the scene of the wreck, which happened about 3:25 p.m. on a Bryan County road one mile east and 3½ miles south of Colbert, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. The report listed her age as 10.

The funeral home and Colbert Public School listed her age as 9. She was a fourth-grader at Eastward Elementary School, a secretary said.

A funeral home employee said the family had not made any arrangements Monday morning.

The girl was a passenger in a sport utility vehicle, which was traveling north at an unsafe speed when it ran off the road and rolled over, the patrol reported.

The SUV was driven by a 13-year-old boy, and two other juveniles also were in the vehicle, according to the report.
