Two Upshur County teenagers are dead following a Saturday morning accident on Interstate 79 in Harrison County.

Emergency officials say Dalton Tenney, 19, and a 17 year old girl were thrown out of a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant when Tenney lost control and hit a guardrail.

The girl was in critical condition at Ruby Memorial Hospital at one point over the weekend, but Harrison County authorities say she died from her injuries.

She was not being identified publicly on Monday morning.

The accident happened at Mile Marker 128, between the South Fairmont and Saltwell Road exits, of I-79.

    Sadly, this sounds like another case where seat belt use could have prevented their deaths.
