Be prepared when you hit the road. Here are some quick tips on what to do if you are in a car accident.

A 16-year-old girl was found dead on a rural Canyon County road early Friday after a rollover crash, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The crash that killed Natasha Hutton, of Caldwell, happened on Mink Road, just west of Farmway Road, according to Canyon County spokesman Joe Decker.

“The victim had earlier been reported as overdue in returning from her job and an attempt to locate was done at that time,” Decker said.

She was ejected from the vehicle and reportedly wasn’t wearing a seat belt. The crash was called in at 4:10 a.m., but it’s unclear whether that’s the time she was found or the time the crash occurred.

Parma High School Principal Monique Jensen told the Idaho Statesman on Friday that Natasha was a junior at the school. Parents and students at the high school were notified of her death on Friday and crisis counseling was available.
