A 17-year-old Northfield, Minnesota, teen is dead after a single-vehicle rollover crash Sunday on Interstate 90 near Bangor.

The Wisconsin State Patrol isn’t releasing the name of the female victim, who died after being transported to Gundersen Hospital in La Crosse.

According to the State Patrol, the teen was operating an eastbound vehicle that had been at "high speeds" shortly before noon, when the vehicle rolled over and landed on its roof.

A 14-year-old male passenger, also from Northfield, was able to exit the vehicle and escape with minor injuries.
