A Midwest City High School senior who crashed his motorcycle while driving to school early Friday has died. Kittrick Denone Johnson Jr., 17, of Oklahoma City, died Saturday morning, said Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes.

The motorcycle caught fire and Johnson suffered third-degree burns, Clabes said. The driver of the Impala, James Griffiths, 63, of Midwest City, made an improper left turn in front of the motorcycle, but he has not been cited, Clabes said. The accident is under investigation.
