A teenage girl was hit and killed by a speeding SUV while she was waiting for a bus in St. Paul on Thursday.

Clarisse Grime, 16, and her boyfriend were sitting in the grass in front of Harding High School and waiting for a city bus when a red SUV sped through a stop sign, hopped over the curb, knocked over a fire hydrant, and hit Grimes, killing her instantly, the Star Tribune said.

Grime's boyfriend, Eduardo Vazquez-Torres, 17, was injured in the incident and was taken to Regions Hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Witnesses at the scene said the SUV was speeding on Third Street headed east when the driver attempted a sharp turn onto Hazelwood when he lost control of the vehicle, MPR News reported. He jumped out of the SUV before it rolled down a small embankment where Grimes was crushed by the vehicle, witnesses said.

The driver, a 50-year-old man, is in custody on suspicion of criminal vehicle operation, police said.
