The 14 year old female sustained fatal injuries on scene. The 74 year old female sustained severe injuries and was transported to a hospital to meet a medical helicopter for further transport. While at the hospital the 74 year old female died from her injuries. The female driver and front seat male passenger were restrained and received non-life threatening injuries.
