An Emmett woman died and her 13-year-old passenger suffered injuries Saturday in a car crash on Idaho Highway 52 near the Sweet-Ola Highway.

The Gem County accident occurred as Katherine Stevens, 52, of Emmett, was traveling east on Highway 52 when she drifted off the road entering a curve, Idaho State Police said.  

As she tried to get back on the road, troopers said, Stevens overcorrected and that caused the vehicle to roll. The car went down an embankment.  

Both Stevens and passenger Kaitlyn Stevens were ejected.  Neither was wearing a seat belt, investigators said.  

Kaitlyn was transported by air ambulance to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise with unknown injuries. Katherine Stevens was transported to Walter Knox Medical Center in Emmett, where she died from her injuries.  

The case remains under investigation.
