WASILLA -- A 17-year-old Wasilla girl has died of injuries suffered when the all-terrain vehicle she was driving overturned.

Alaska State Troopers say Cheyanne M. Jorge was driving the ATV south on a trail along Lucille Street and was carrying a passenger, 17-year-old Zackery S. Potteiger of Wasilla, late Thursday afternoon. Troopers say the ATV crossed a driveway and turned over, injuring both teens. Neither wore a helmet.

Jorge and Potteiger were rushed to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. Jorge died at the hospital. Potteiger was treated and released.
