Couple identified from Tuesday night fatal crash

A 17-year-old girl has died and her 20-year-old boyfriend has been hospitalized following a fatal motor vehicle crash.

Salena Cochrane was partially ejected from the driver's seat after crashing on County Road D in Scotts Bluff County,  and died on scene. Her boyfriend Chris Miller was transported to Regional West Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. 

Scotts Bluff County Sheriff Mark Overman says restraints were not in use. An investigation reveals that the vehicle apparently lost control on the roadway and rolled twice. 

Authorities were on scene for more than two-and-a-half hours last night, following the accident that was reported at 7:03 p.m.
