(KAIR)--The second of two teens trapped inside a car that landed upside down in an Atchison creek has died.

According to a Facebook post, 16-year-old Regan Moger, of Houston, Texas, died at the University of Kansas Hospital, where she was flown following the Sunday afternoon wreck.

The post, apparently made by her father, was posted to Facebook around 11:00 Tuesday morning.

Moger was a passenger in the car driven by 16-year-old Zachary Armontrout, of Rushville, Missouri, who died Monday morning at the University of Kansas Hospital.

Both were students at Maur Hill-Mount Academy Catholic High School, in Atchison.

Armontrout and Moger were trapped for a period of time in the car as it lay upside down in Independence Creek.

Three other teens, also students at Maur Hill-Mount Academy, escaped the Sunday afternoon crash with only minor, or possible, injuries.

The school Tuesday afternoon issued a press release confirming Moger's death, saying she died midday Tuesday while surrounded by family and loved ones.

The release notes that Armontrout's family and loved ones were also with him when he died.

Maur Hill-Mount Academy President Phil Baniewicz, in the release, said, “Our hearts ache and our prayers go out to the families and our students. We trust God is taking care of them.”

Atchison County Undersheriff Toby Smith told MSC News the vehicle was westbound on Atchison's River Road, at the Independence Bridge, when it crashed through the guardrail to the right, before landing in the water below.

The crash was reported around 2:30 Sunday afternoon.

It remains under investigation by the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Funeral services for Armontrout will be Friday evening at 7:00 at Saint Benedict's Abbey, while a memorial mass for Moger will be Monday morning at 11:00 at Maur Hill-Mount Academy. Her funeral will be Tuesday in Houston.
