Accident in Canyon kills 15 year old Amarillo girl

A 15 year old Amarillo girl died early Wednesday morning in Canyon after slamming her car into a highway barrier.

Canyon Police say around 2am,  the girl took the turn from Highway 60 onto Highway 87 too fast.

The driver, 15 year old Emalie Pizano, lost control on the rain slicked road, causing the car to slam into the barrier dividing US-87 North and South.

She didn't have her seatbelt on, and died at the scene.

Another 15 year old girl and a 24 year old man, also from Amarillo, went to the hospital with serious injuries.
