An Alabama Highway Patrol public information officer said "16-year-old Hunter Railey from Broxton was killed on impact when the motorcycle he was driving hit an SUV on County Road 1435. 15-year old Rebecca Dyall was a passenger on the motorcycle."

Troopers don’t know which hospital in Huntsville she was flown to. The driver of the SUV was not injured.

The investigation is continuing.
