VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A teen involved in a crash that left her car in two pieces on a Vancouver street has died.

Vancouver police said Tuesday that Molly Mayo, 19, of Vancouver, did not survive her injuries from the crash at Southeast 123rd and Mill Plain Boulevard early Monday morning.

Investigators said Mayo lost control of her Volkswagen Jetta and hit a pole at 1:40 a.m. The car split in half and Mayo, along with her passenger, Caylie Nelson, 19, of Vancouver, were rushed to the hospital.

Police said Nelson's injuries were not as severe and she was listed in satisfactory condition Monday night.

Police are still investigating what caused Mayo to lose control of the car, but police told Fox 12 Monday speed and alcohol are believed to be factors. No other vehicles were involved, according to investigators.
