A 16-year-old was killed and another suffered serious injuries in a crash in St. Cloud.

The collision happened around 9:21 p.m. Tuesday on the 3000 block of County Road 74, according to the St. Cloud Police Department.

A 17-year-old was behind the wheel of a vehicle traveling south on the county road. Also in the car was the 16-year-old.

A second vehicle, traveling northbound, had three occupants — an 18-year-old driver plus two passengers, aged 19 and 20 — the police department said. 

The two vehicles, heading opposite directions, crashed into each other on the two-lane road.

Police and paramedics arrived on the scene and began providing aid, while firefighters worked to extricate one of the occupants from the wreckage, police said.

The 16-year-old passenger in the first vehicle died at the scene, according to police. The 17-year-old driver of that car suffered serious injuries, though authorities don't believe they are life-threatening. The driver was taken to the hospital.
