KINGSTON, N.H. (AP) — A mix of snow and rain on the road appears to have contributed to a vehicle collision in which a 15-year-old passenger died from her injuries, New Hampshire State Police said.

The crash happened Friday in East Kingston as a storm passed through the state. The teen was riding in a car traveling north on North Road. Police said the driver, a 17-year-old girl, lost control of the vehicle, which crossed into the southbound lane.

The car was struck on the passenger side by a southbound pickup truck, police said. The impact caused both vehicles to go off the road.
