Two St. Clair teens were injured in a car crash Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Lauren P. Hopperton, 16, was driving a 2006 Volkswagen Passat westbound on Peacock Road, east of Winkler Road, when she crested a hill and became airborne at 9:47 p.m., according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol preliminary report.

After the vehicle landed, it traveled off the right side of the road, struck a tree and overturned.

Hopperton and passenger Hanna M. Talley, 16, were taken to Mercy Hospital Washington by St. Clair Ambulance for injuries.

The driver and passenger were both wearing seat belts, the patrol said.
