LONGVIEW, WA (KPTV) -

A 17-year-old girl died in a rollover crash in the Longview area Friday.

Deputies responded to the 300 block of Woodside Drive at 9 a.m. and found a Subaru car on its top on the shoulder of the road.

The teen driver was still wearing a seat belt, but she was unresponsive. Deputies said she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nobody else was in the car.

The girl's name has not been released by the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said the car was heading south on Woodside Drive in a 35 mph zone when it entered a corner, hit an embankment on the passenger side and rolled onto its top.

Investigators believe speed may have contributed to the crash. There was no indication of alcohol use by the driver.

There are no known witnesses to the crash.
