Three other teens in the car with that girl, 1 male and 2 females, were taken to a local hospital. The 16-year-old driver of the SUV was not injured.

CBS 11 News has confirmed several of the teens are students at Kimball High School. Administrators with the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) are sending counselors to the school.

A sixth teen, in another vehicle, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police say it was that driver who clipped the SUV with the five teens inside causing the driver to loose control, flip, and crash against an iron pole.

Investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what caused the driver of the car to hit the SUV, but they say speed was a factor.
