Teenage Girl Dies in Fatal Single-Vehicle Crash

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

A 16-year-old female from Grantfork was fatally injured Friday night in a single-vehicle crash near Highland. The incident occurred around 7:30 pm Friday night when the 16-year-old driver and another female teen passenger were traveling westbound on Michael Road near Iberg Road in a 1994 Chevrolet Corvette. According to authorities, the vehicle veered off the road before rolling over. Although the crash is still under investigation, authorities believe that excessive speed was a contributing factor. Following the accident, the 16-year-old driver, who was a junior at Highland High School, was flown to a St. Louis hospital, where she died this past Monday. The teenage passenger was also taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
