Authorities say the 15-year-old driver of a sport utility vehicle has died after a rollover crash in northeast Nebraska.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office says 15-year-old Mary Rowley, of Bloomfield, died Saturday at an Omaha hospital.

The office says the accident was reported a little after 6 p.m. Friday.

Deputies say Rowley had lost control of the SUV when she turned onto a southbound road near Wausa.

The SUV rolled several times, ejecting Rowley and two passengers.

A third passenger was able to climb out of the wreckage, which had started to burn.

Her three passengers were treated at Osmond General Hospital and released.

Rowley was treated there before being flown to The Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Authorities say speed and road conditions were factors in the crash.
