ST. LOUIS — Two teenagers are dead and four others are injured following a wreck in unincorporated north St. Louis County, near the town of Black Jack.

St. Louis County Police say a 14-year-old boy was driving his parents' car with some friends when he struck a sewer culvert just before 3 a.m. Friday, causing the car to overturn and crash in a resident's yard.

The boy driving the car and a 15-year-old passenger were killed.

The 15-year-old, along with four other passengers ranging in age from 14 to 16, were ejected. No one in the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.

No names have been released yet.
