Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The State Patrol says a car crash in east-central Minnesota has killed six people, including three teenagers.

The patrol says one of the drivers, a 16-year-old who got her license less than three weeks ago, was hospitalized in serious condition.

According to the patrol, a car driven by the 16-year-old was heading west on Highway 95 early Sunday when it collided with a sport utility vehicle west of Cambridge, which is about 40 miles north of Minneapolis.

Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske says no one in the car apparently was wearing a seat belt. He says a 15-year-old girl, two boys ages 16 and 17, and a 21-year-old man in the car were killed.


He says the two people who died in the SUV were severely burned.

The patrol says roads were wet at the time of the 2:40 a.m. crash.

The victims' identities haven't been released.
