JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the teenager who died Tuesday when the vehicle she was driving rolled on a frost-covered roadway.

Authorities on Wednesday identified the victim as 16-year-old Baylee Stoppleworth, of Kensal. The passenger who survived the crash is 16-year-old Jamestown resident Maci Olsen.

The Highway Patrol says Stoppleworth lost control of her sport utility vehicle while negotiating a curve around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday on Highway 20, six miles north of Jamestown. The SUV entered the ditch and rolled. Both women were transported to a hospital, where Stoppleworth died.

An incident report shows Olsen was wearing a seatbelt, but Stoppleworth was not.

The Highway Patrol says the incident remains under investigation.
