IRONWOOD TOWNSHIP - Two teens are dead and a community is mourning the loss following a single-vehicle crash near Little Girl's Point Saturday morning.

Gogebic County Sheriff's Department deputies responded to reports of the accident on Lake Road near Powers Road in Ironwood Township at approximately 2:32 a.m. Saturday morning.

Deputies arriving on the scene located a vehicle that sustained severe damage after it left the roadway and struck a tree, according to a department news release.

Two girls, ages 18 and 15, died in the crash, according to the release. A third occupant of the vehicle, a 20-year-old man, survived the crash and walked to a nearby house to report the accident.

He was later transported Aspirus Ironwood Hospital, according to the release, where he was treated and released.

Lake Road was temporarily closed during the investigation into the crash, and has since reopened.

The investigation into the accident continues, the release said, and the sheriff's department hasn't released the names of those in the vehicle.
