According to the release, a 19-year-old male and a 14-year-old female were in a Volvo traveling south on Highway 23 near Clear Creek just after 1 a.m. As the vehicle came around a curve, it hit a patch of ice, left the road and came to rest in the ditch on the east.

The report did not state the individual status of the occupants, but did indicate the crash involved at least one fatality. The report also stated the crash involved an unbelted or unrestrained occupant, but did not specify further.

More information about the occupants will be released at a later date.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
