A passenger in the truck, a 15-year-old girl, was declared dead at the scene. Her name has not been released.
The driver, a 16-year-old girl, was extracted from the truck and flown by STARS to a Saskatoon hospital with serious injuries.
A third teen, an 18-year-old woman, was taken by ambulance to Swift Current and later transported by STARS to a Saskatoon hospital with serious injuries.
The cause of the fatal rollover remains under investigation.
