HOUSTON, Minn. — A 16-year-old Winona Senior High School student was killed Friday afternoon in a car accident.
Sophia Allena Moe was the passenger and not wearing her seatbelt when the 16-year-old driver lost control of the vehicle on Hwy. 76 near Scenic View Drive, according to the police report.
Another in the car — all three were 16 — were taken to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse for treatment. Their conditions have not been released.
Alcohol appears to not be a factor.
Moe was going to be a junior at Winona High.
This is the second teenage death this month in the area, and involving not wearing a seatbelt.
A 15-year-old La Crosse girl died in early July in a rollover on I-90.
