VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A teen girl has died and a teen boy has been injured in Washington state after a two-vehicle collision near Vancouver, authorities said.

First responders were called to the scene after a report that a GMC pickup truck struck a Honda Civic on Saturday at 8:55 p.m., about 10 miles (16 kilometers) north of Vancouver, The Columbian reported.

The two occupants of the Civic, a 14-year-old girl and the 16-year-old driver, suffered life-threatening injuries and were taken to local hospitals, where the girl later died, authorities said. Police did not release the names of either teen.

The Clark County sheriff’s office said the 37-year-old driver of the pickup was not injured and remained at the scene.

The truck was traveling north in continuous traffic where the speed limit was 50 mph when the Civic, which was traveling west and had a stop sign, pulled into the truck’s path, deputies said. The GMC hit the Civic just behind the driver’s door.

An investigation is ongoing.
