An 18-year-old died Saturday after crashing into another car while traveling on South U.S. Highway 1, police say.

Fort Pierce police are currently investigating the fatal crash. They say 18-year-old Cheyenne Hayes was traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 1 in a truck when Hayes lost control and veered into the northbound lanes.

Hayes' truck ended up colliding with a white Honda Accord, they added. The crash shut down the road for two hours, they said.

The driver of the Honda and Hayes were both taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center where Hayes was pronounced dead, police added. The other driver got treatment for non-life threatening injuries, they said.
