LEHI, Utah — One of two teens who were struck by a vehicle in Lehi Friday afternoon has died.

A 13-year-old boy and 15-year-old girl were standing on a median at the intersection of 3600 West and 2100 North when a car passing through the intersection veered off the road and hit them, sending them flying about 100 feet.

The girl was flown by medical helicopter to the hospital, where she later died. The condition of the boy is still unknown.

The driver cooperated with police following the accident.

Olson said bystanders jumped in to help the teens after the accident.

"They’re rushing across the street — a busy street at that — at 2100 North here to help people that they don’t know, and so I'm grateful for them," he said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family of the girl killed in the accident to help pay for funeral expenses.
