The names of the victim's were not released, but police said the Mazda was being driven by a 17-year-old female from Ballwin, who suffered significant injury. The vehicle's passenger, a female from Ellisville whose age was unknown, sustained intermediate injuries.
The driver of the Jeep was a woman from House Springs, Mo., and she suffered intermediate injuries. Police said she was either 40 or 41 years old.
