MILWAUKEE — An 18-year-old woman was killed after being thrown from her vehicle in a single-car crash Sunday evening, Milwaukee police say.

It happened just after 6:30 p.m. in the 5300 block of Teutonia Ave., according to a news release from police.

An initial investigation showed that the car was driving southbound on Teutonia when it lost control and struck several objects, including a pole and a tree, before rolling over.

The 18-year-old was ejected from the car and died after being taken to a local hospital, police say.

The passenger in the car, a 19-year-old woman, survived with minor injuries.

Police say a combination of speed, weather, and road conditions likely contributed to the crash.
