NEWBURGH, Ind. (AP/WDRB) - A southwestern Indiana teen has died after the sled she was riding was struck by a car.

Davis Collier, 16, was pronounced dead at the scene Saturday night in Newburgh, east of Evansville.

Police say Collier slid into the roadway. She was a student at Castle High School in Newburgh.

The school posted a tweet Sunday saying that students will assemble in the auditorium "to grieve together and talk with counselors."

Police arrested the driver of the car, 20-year-old Galina Witte of Evansville. She is charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with a prior conviction and operating while intoxicated endangering others.

The accident remains under investigation by Newburgh Police.
