BYRNES MILL, Mo. (AP) — One teenager was killed and four others were seriously hurt when their car slid into a tree and a utility pole early Sunday.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said a 17-year-old girl from Cedar Hill died in the crash that happened near Byrnes Mill, which is about 25 miles southwest of St. Louis.
