A car carrying four people from a fireworks show in Monroe County crashed into a median on Interstate 75, killing a 15-year-old girl.

Berlin Fire Chief Paul Barron says the girl was thrown from the car and hit by another vehicle Tuesday night. He tells the Monroe Evening News "it was awful."

Three others in the car, including a 19-year-old driver, didn't have serious injuries. Emergency crews were at the scene near Newport Road until 3 a.m. Wednesday.

The girl who died was a student at Riverview High School. Her name was not immediately released.

    sad story that could have probably been 100% avoidable. if she was thrown from the vehicle it is likely she wasn't wearing a seat belt. even in the back seat 15 year olds are required to wear safety belts. from MSP: "Passengers 8-15 to buckle up in all seating positions"

      why do people always have to bring up what happened in their life when the story isn't about them? Godbless the family of the teen girl that died.
