PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. (AP) Authorities say a 13-year-old girl was at the wheel during a car crash that fatally injured another teenager at a wildlife refuge in eastern Nebraska.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office says the accident was reported a little before 9 p.m. Monday at the Schilling Wildlife Refuge, which is on the northeast side of Plattsmouth.

Deputies say the girl lost control of the car as it raced down a gravel road. A 14-year-old girl in the back seat was ejected when the car rolled. She was pronounced dead later at an Omaha hospital. Deputies identified her as 14-year-old Alexandria Wood, of Plattsmouth.

The young driver and a 21-year-old passenger in the front seat were hospitalized.
