INVERNESS, Fla. (AP) — Two teens are dead after their car overturned in Florida, authorities said.

The crash occurred Monday afternoon on a rural road near the Withlacoochee State Forest in southern Citrus County, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

A 17-year-old girl was driving when she failed to negotiate a curve for unknown reasons and drove off the road, FHP said. The car flipped over, ejecting the girl and her passenger, an 18-year-old man. Crash investigators said neither was wearing a seat belt.

The young man was declared dead at the scene, and the girl died a short time later at a nearby hospital, FHP said.
