James Gabriel Thompson, 37, of Summit was killed in a single-car wreck in Pittsburg County near Savanna on Saturday, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Thompson was a passenger in a 2008 Chevrolet Colorado driven by Brooke Shanice Hale, 31, of Muskogee. Another Muskogee woman was also a passenger, but she was not injured. The vehicle was southbound on US 69 around 8:30 p.m. when it departed the roadway to the right, rolling one and a half times before coming to rest on its top. Thompson was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene by Pafford EMS.

Hale was taken by EMS to McAlester Regional Hospital, where she was treated and released for minor injuries. Both Hale and the female passenger were wearing seatbelts. Thompson was not.
