About 4:30 p.m. Friday, a car driven by Roberto Gamboa, 33, of Catoosa, with two teenage passengers, was driving east on Interstate 44 and had slowed for traffic.
A pickup also traveling east, driven by Kevin Fisher, 51, of Tulsa, failed to slow with traffic and collided with the rear of the car, troopers said.
The pickup and car then collided with two other vehicles on the highway.
Gamboa and the two teenagers were taken to a Tulsa hospital. The 16-year-old girl died about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, troopers said.

Nancy Vea, 19, Charleston, Ark.
Vea died Saturday morning after a crash on the Muskogee Turnpike in Wagoner County, troopers said.
Duane Carter, 53, of Greenwood, Ark., was driving a van carrying five passengers south on the Muskogee Turnpike about 8:30 a.m. Friday when he tried to make an improper U-turn at a barricade turnaround, troopers said.
David Housdan, the driver of a tractor-trailer that was following behind Carter, slowed to avoid hitting the van.
When Housdan braked, a 16-passenger bus driven by Donald Green, of Muskogee, struck his truck from behind, causing the truck to strike Carter’s van, troopers said.
