Authorities also say the 16-year-old female was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials have not released the female victim's name.

The 15-year-old male was flown to the University of Cincinnati Hospital to be treated for "serious injuries."

Officials say the driver of the second vehicle was flown to the University of Cincinnati Hospital to be treated. There's no word on that person's condition. A passenger who was in the second vehicle was treated at the scene, according to police.

The crash remains under investigation by Kentucky State Police.
