HIGHLAND COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Two teenage girls died in a single vehicle crash late Wednesday, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

A 2004 Chrysler Sebring traveling southbound on New Martinsburg Road near Ohio 28 failed to negotiate a curve about 9:15 p.m., troopers said in a prepared statement.

The vehicle ran off the left side of the road, hit a tree, overturned and landed on its top in a creek, they said.

The interior of the vehicle submerged in water. 

Both occupants, driver Kimberly Sears, 17, of Wilmington, and right front passenger Kehte Little, 17, of Sabina, were taken by ambulance to a hospital, troopers said.

They were pronounced dead by the Highland County Coroner.  

The crash remains under investigation.

Alcohol and drugs use do not appear to be factors, troopers said. Both teens wore seat belts.

They attended Laurel Oaks Career Campus in Wilmington, said Ron Sexton, superintendent of Wilmington City Schools.

Counseling is being provided at the school for students who knew them.
