ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – One teenage girl has died and five other teenagers are hurt after a crash overnight in St. Charles County.

Police say that Jaylynn Kuethe, 16, of St. Charles, died in the crash. Five others were treated for various injuries at a hospital. Their ages ranged from 14 to 16 years old.

The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. on New Town Boulevard, nearly a quarter-mile from Highway B. Investigators say a Ford Sedan crashed into a utility pole.

Police say all six teenagers in the car were ejected and none of them were wearing seat belts.

“Young people need to be guided,” said Corporal Barry Bayles of the St. Charles County Police Department.  “Sometimes asking the questions, ‘w’Where are you going to be? Who are you going to be with?  What are you going to be doing?’ Checking up on them. Young people don’t always make the best decisions sometimes.  We know that we were all young at one time.  But we want to look out for them and encourage them to make the safest decisions that they can.”

The St. Charles County Police Department is handling the investigation. It’s unclear what led up to the collision at this time.

“Our hearts go out to the family,” said Bayles.

It’s unclear who was driving the vehicle. In Missouri, there is a graduated driver’s license law. In the first six months of driving, a teenager is only allowed three other passengers under the age of 19.
