CAMBRIDGE, Minn. (AP) — The Isanti County sheriff says a preliminary report shows the 16-year-old driver in a highway crash that killed six people had not been drinking.
The driver was the lone survivor of the crash early Sunday on Highway 95 near Cambridge. Four people in the girl's Pontiac Grand Am were killed, as well as two others in an SUV.
Authorities said earlier they could smell alcohol in the Grand Am following the crash.
The Star Tribune reports that Sheriff Russ Monson was still waiting for the official toxicology results from the crash, but he said a preliminary report showed the teen driver had no alcohol in her system.
Seven traffic accidents since last Friday have resulted in the deaths of 16 people in Minnesota.
