Lone Grove Teen Dies in Car Accident


LONE GROVE, OK-- Friends and family said 16-year old Cheyenne Lee had a smile that could light up the room, but that light was dimmed Monday afternoon.
"She was just a beautiful fun loving girl," said Cheyenne's dad Curtis Stone."She wouldn't use her phone; she was kind of like driving miss daisy. It's the way she always drove so that's what's mind boggling."

Cheyenne's dad, Curtis Stone said he's devastated. He said Cheyenne was his baby
and that she was on her way to work when she wrecked.

"It looks like she hit the groove in the road, misjudged and over steered and lost control," said Stone.

 The teen who just got her license 4 months ago, was driving down Cheek Road at 4 p.m. Monday When she drove off the left side of the road, flipped her car and hit a telephone poll.

Cheyenne was ejected and died at the scene. Troopers said speed may have been a factor.

Her brother was driving home and just happened to drive up on the scene he didn't want to appear on camera but said it's not something anyone wants to experience.

Her death has left so many who knew her broken hearted and grieving.

"She was an outgoing young lady that was one of those students that did not get in trouble, was well behaved and a model student," said Superintendent Chris Sudderth.

Cheyenne had four older siblings and her dad said it's a great loss for everyone.

"She was the baby, she was the youngest, and she will be missed very much," said Stone.

Lone Grove High School Principal Chris Sudderth said counselors were called in from other schools to help Cheyenne's friends, classmates and even teachers cope with her tragic death.

"We have brought some other site counselors from across our district here so today so we have four or five counselors on site that are ready and willing to talk to students and we've been doing that all morning," said Sudderth.

Cheyenne was a member of the band and chorus team.

She was preparing for a chorus trip to Branson. Her dad said the trip was already paid for and told the principal that he didn't want a refund, but he wanted the money for the trip to go to a student that may not otherwise have been able to go with the team.

 A first of many different ways her family hopes to honor her memory.

a Vigil will be held in Cheyenne's memory at Lone Grove High School on Thursday at 7:30.

Her funeral will be held at 3:00 p.m. at the Craddock Funeral home in Ardmore.
