CROSS PLAINS, Wis. (WISC) -- One person is dead following a two-vehicle crash in the town of Cross Plains, officials said.

Dane County deputies, along with first responders from Mount Horeb, were called out to County Road J at Valley Spring Road around 10:10 p.m. on Thursday.

A preliminary investigation indicates a 16-year-old girl from Mount Horeb was westbound on County Road J. She was driving a 2011 Subaru Legacy when police say it crossed the center line and struck a 2008 Saturn Vue headed east. A 55-year-old man from Cross Plains was driving the Saturn.

Police said the teenager was wearing her seat belt and is expected to be OK. The male driver was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Airbags in both vehicles deployed as a result of the crash.
