UPDATE: Teen dies in Taylor County crash

TAYLOR COUNTY (WAOW) -- A 17-year-old female has died after a car crash Tuesday in the Town of Deer Creek, according to Taylor County Sheriff's officers.

Four Medford teenagers were hurt in that crash. Officers say the vehicle swerved to avoid a dog and rolled over on Hall Drive.

All four teenagers were taken to Memorial Hospital of Taylor County. The 16-year-old driver and two passengers, a 16-year-old female and 18-year-old male, were treated and released.

A fourth passenger, a 17-year-old female, was eventually airlifted to the Marshfield Hospital. Officers told Newsline 9 Wednesday night that she died there from her injuries.

Police say it does not appear the teenagers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
