NEWARK, Del. — A two-car crash in Delaware has left a teenage girl dead and injured two other people.

The crash occurred Tuesday night in Newark. Troopers say in a statement that 17-year-old Caitlin Rouwhorst, of Newark, had stopped at a stop sign.

Police say Rouwhorst drove into the intersection into the path of a car driven by a Newark man. Investigators say Rouwhorst’s car was struck on the driver’s side door.

Rouwhorst was taken to a hospital, where she died. A passenger in her car and the driver of the other car were taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers say impairment does not appear to be a contributing factor in the crash, which is under investigation.
