A 19-year-old from KCK is dead after a crash in southeastern Colorado.

Britney Ackerman was ejected from a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier that went off U.S. Highway 50 near La Junta Wednesday and crashed into a traffic sign. The Colorado State Patrol says she wasn't wearing a seat belt.

The driver of the car wasn't injured and another passenger suffered minor injuries.

Troopers believe drugs may have contributed to the crash but it is still under investigation.
