ONAMIA, Minn. -- The State Patrol says a 16-year-old girl is dead after she pulled out in front of an SUV and was broadsided on Saturday evening.

Investigators say 16-year-old Deanna M. Anderson of Onamia was at the intersection of Highway 169 and Highway 27 in Mille Lacs County when she pulled out into traffic around 6:10 p.m.

The State Patrol says it did detect alcohol in Anderson's system after the crash.

Troopers say Anderson was stopped at a stop sign on Highway 27 and pulled out onto Highway 169 in front of an SUV driven by 47-year-old Douglas J. Hodgeman of Coon Rapids.

Anderson's mother, 37-year-old Michele Berger of Brainerd, 10-year-old Denise L. Anderson of Onamia and 6-year-old Danielle L. Berger of Onamia were riding in the car with her. 

All three were injured, but troopers say they should recover. Hodgeman and the two children in Anderson's car were treated and released and troopers say Michele Berger's injuries are not life threatening.  Troopers say the road was wet at the time of the crash.

Anderson's 1996 Chevy Lumina and Hodgeman's 1998 Jeep Cherokee were both totaled.

This is the third crash since Friday that killed a teen. On Friday, three teen girls died in Winona County when their pick-up truck rolled over. And on Sunday morning, three teens and three other people died in a head-on crash in Isanti County.
