OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The death toll from a chain-reaction accident on an Oklahoma turnpike this weekend has risen to 10.

Freeman Hospital in Joplin, Mo., said Sunday that 35-year-old Shelby Hayes of Frisco, Texas, had died. She had been in critical condition with head, internal and external injuries after Friday's crash.

Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., said Sunday that the condition of 12-year-old Andrea Reyes, of Phoenix, Ariz., was upgraded from critical to serious.

Some victims of the accident had been trapped in the wreckage for up to nine hours after a tractor-trailer slammed into cars that had stopped on the highway because of a previous accident.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a routine criminal investigation is under way.
