ASHWAUBENON (NBC 26) -- A 25-year-old woman died following a rollover crash on I-41 Friday afternoon.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office said the woman was driving an SUV southbound on I-41 when she lost control and the SUV rolled over several times.

The Sheriff's Office said both the driver and a passenger in the SUV were not wearing seatbelts and were thrown from the vehicle. The driver, who was from the Green Bay area, was taken to an area hospital where she was declared dead. The passenger, a 28-year-old woman also from the Green Bay area, was hospitalized for non-life threatening injuries.

The Sheriff's Office is investigating the crash.

All southbound lanes on I-41 at WIS 172 were previously closed due to the crash Friday, WisDOT says. The crash was cleared and lanes reopened later in the afternoon.
