A 17-year-old Turlock girl was killed in a crash in Turlock on Saturday evening, and another 17-year-old girl suffered major injuries.

The teens were in a sedan and stopped at a stop sign on westbound Angelus Street at West Avenue South just after 5 p.m., according to the Turlock Police Department.

The sedan entered the intersection, where a southbound SUV crashed into its passenger side, police said. The 18-year-old driver of the SUV did not have a stop sign, but police said speed appears to be a factor in the collision.

Bystanders at the scene got the driver out of the vehicle and started CPR, which resulted in her regaining consciousness.

The passenger was pinned in the sedan and had to be extricated from the vehicle by the Turlock Fire Department. She later died at a hospital.

The other girl is in critical but stable condition, according to police. The driver of the SUV was not injured.

The department is not releasing the names of any of the people involved in the crash.
