The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said a teenager died in a single vehicle crash in the southwest part of the county Tuesday afternoon.  

Taylor N. Gaines, 16, died when her SUV hit a guardrail on State Route 665 near Graessle Road around 2:20 p.m.   Deputies said Gaines lost control of her 1999 Chevrolet SUV and veered off the road. 

Gaines was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.  

Deputies said neither alcohol nor drugs were suspected to play a role in the crash.

Gaines' father and sister told 10TV late Tuesday they were devastated and making plans for her funeral service. 

Friends of Gaines told 10TV she attended Westland High School and was very kind and caring.

"I think the cool thing about Westland is that everybody will come together and just grieve and mourn her death," said friend Drew Barrow.
