The Missouri Highway Patrol said a 17-year-old girl from Cedar Hill died in the crash that happened around 1:45 a.m. Sunday near Byrnes Mill, which is about 25 miles southwest of St. Louis.
A different 17-year-old girl from Cedar Hill was driving the 2013 Ford Fusion when the car partially slid off the side of the road into the tree and utility pole. She was the only one wearing a seat belt in the car.
