POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — Idaho State Police say two teenagers died in a crash on Interstate 15 north of Fort Hall.

Troopers say a 2002 Ford Mustang driven by 17-year-old Micah Story of Chubbuck crossed over the median and into the southbound lanes on Tuesday afternoon. The Mustang overturned and was struck by a tractor-trailer.

The Idaho State Journal reports that Story and her passenger, 18-year-old Jacob Colbo of Blackfoot, were both declared dead at the scene.

The truck driver was unharmed.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident, but say they don't believe speed was a factor.

The crash closed southbound traffic on the interstate until about 7 p.m.
