The driver went off the road and crashed.

A 19-year-old was killed and another was injured in a crash in St. Paul early Thursday. 

A 19-year-old woman from Detroit Lakes was driving on Shepard Road near the ramp to southbound Interstate 35E at 12:32 p.m. when she went off the road and crashed, the Minnesota State Patrol's report says

She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Her passenger, 19-year-old Shaterries Monique Barlow of Minneapolis, was taken to the hospital, where she died. 

The State Patrol says that Barlow was not wearing a seat belt. It also said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash, but this has not been officially confirmed.

At least 44 of those who have died this year were not wearing a seatbelt and at least 54 people died in alcohol-related crashes, data show.
