LINDEN GROVE, Minn. (AP) _ The Minnesota State Patrol says a car collided with a semi-trailer, killing a Missouri teen and leaving two others with serious injuries.

A Hibbing Daily Tribune report says the collision happened in Linden Grove, Minnesota on Tuesday evening.

A preliminary investigation says the car driver ran a stop sign and collided with the trailer.

The driver was 21-year-old Whitney Cragun of Ironton, Minnesota. She suffered serious injuries, as did 22-year-old Jonathon Vickers.

Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth Hill of Liberty, Missouri died in the wreck. The truck driver wasn't hurt.

Authorities say alcohol was not a factor.
