A 17-year-old from Jackson died and her passenger is in critical condition after a two-car accident Saturday night.

Blackman Township Police say heavy rain likely caused the teenager to lose control of the vehicle and hit a northbound car. A mother and her two teenage sons were in the northbound vehicle, and were hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries after the accident.

Authorities are still investigating whether alcohol or excessive speed played a role in the crash.

The name of the victim is not yet being released pending notification of the family.
