State police say one woman has been killed and another injured in a utility vehicle crash in Clearfield County.

Troopers from the Dubois barracks say 19-year-old Lexie Wise, of Dubois, was killed when the vehicle she was driving crashed about 2 a.m. Thursday. Police say Wise was speeding before the vehicle went down an embankment and hit a tree in Winslow Township.

A passenger, 20-year-old Shannon Thompson, of Reynoldsville, was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital where her condition was not immediately available Friday.

A utility vehicle is similar to an all-terrain vehicle, but typically features an enclosed cab or a small bed that can be used to haul cargo.

State police say both women were wearing seat belts, but neither had on a helmet.
