The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says a Lake Nebagamon teenager was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Wednesday afternoon.

The crash happened on County Road B near Old Lyman Lake Road in the South Range area just before 4 p.m.  The sheriff's office says a pickup truck collided with the rear end of a utility vehicle which was spraying brush in the ditch.

A passenger in the pickup truck, 15-year-old Seth N. Stariha, was pronounced dead at the scene.  The pickup truck was driven by Seth Stariha's sister, 19-year-old Natasha M. Stariha, who was taken to a Duluth hospital with injuries.

The driver of the utility truck was not injured.

Authorities continue to investigate the crash.
