Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Chattanooga police are investigating a deadly two-car crash in Hixson Wednesday.

It happened on Highway 153 at Grubb Road around 3:21 p.m.

Police Spokesman Nathan Hartwig tells Channel 3, a white Honda drive in the southbound lanes of Highway 153 was T-boned, as the driver, 21-year-old Stephen Cox, was turning east onto Grubb Road.

Hartwig says the passenger, a 17-year-old male, died as a result and Cox was taken to Erlanger for non-life threatening injuries.

He says the driver of the other car, 19-year-old Joshua McQuaid, complained of minor injuries but refused medical treatment.

Police are working to determine who is at fault.

The crash caused some lanes to close, but those have been reopened.
