A head-on collision west of Cambridge killed four young people in a car smelling of alcohol and also left two dead in a SUV Sunday, the State Patrol told the Star Tribune.
The car smelling of alcohol was driven by a 16-year-old girl from Isanti. The Patrol told the Tribune she had gotten her license less than three weeks ago. She has been hospitalized at Hennipin County Medical Center.
The conditions of her new license state that she was not allowed to drive after midnight and could only drive one other minor passenger in her vehicle, WCCO said.
The girl was identified in the Tribune by relative as Sabrina Schumacher. Schumacher could be faced with criminal charges.
Kelsee Blackledge, 15, Stephen Kendryna, 16, Travis Buchan, 17, and Travis Gryczkowski, 21, were killed in Schumacher's car. Authorities don't think any of the passengers were wearing seat-belts, according to WCCO News.
The two people in the SUV were also killed. Their names have not been released. The SUV burst into flames after the crash and severely burned both occupants, the Patrol told WCCO.
This accident brings the total to 11 Minnesotans killed in crashes since Monday, the Tribune said.
