STRONGSVILLE, Ohio -- A 16-year-old girl is dead after a late-night crash in Strongsville.

Police say the one-vehicle accident happened around 10:25 p.m. Wednesday in the 22600 block of Albion Road.

The vehicle, which had six juveniles inside, went off the roadway and struck a tree.

Authorities say Kailee Mayher, of Strongsville, died as a result of the crash. Three minors who were riding in the backseat, identified as Sarah Attar, Alyssa Collins and Katie Carroll, were taken to local hospitals with injuries.

The car's two front seat occupants, identified as driver Sydney Rosenthal and passenger Morgan Dabran, were not injured.
