6 Dead in Head-On Crash; Alcohol May Be Involved


A total of 6 people were killed Sunday morning when a car filled with teenagers and smelling of alcohol hit an SUV head on, the Star Tribune said.
A 16-year-old Isanti girl was behind the wheel of the car and is in serious condition at the Hennepin County Medical Center. The girl had received her license less than three weeks prior to the accident. Lt. Eric Roeske told Kare 11 News that she was the only survivor.
Roeske said the car was a 1998 Grand Am and it hit a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada which burst into flames upon impact. The two people that were in the SUV were killed, but police say they have not been able to identify them due to the fire.
The Pontiac was carrying a 17-year-old boy from Cambridge who was not wearing a seat belt, a 15-year-old girl who also was not wearing a seat belt, and another 16-year-old boy who was not wearing a seat belt. All are dead. Police say that is was illegal for the girl to be driving the car that late at night, and that she had an illegal amount of people in the car as well.
