TARRANT, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a teenage girl was killed in a car crash in Tarrant that left the driver of the vehicle with two broken legs.

Deputy Jefferson County Coroner Bill Yates tells Al.com (http://bit.ly/1pPNArj ) that 18-year-old Natasha Renee Osby of Pinson was killed when the car she was riding in hit a tree after a brief police pursuit through Tarrant on Friday.

Authorities say Osby was a passenger in the car and the driver was taken to the University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital for treatment. The driver’s identity hasn’t been released.

Information on what led to the pursuit wasn’t immediately available.

Tarrant is just north of Birmingham.
