A 19-year-old and two children have died following a crash Thursday in Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri.

The crash happened around noon on Highway 61, north of Buehler Road.

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Paige D. Johnson, 19, of Ste. Genevieve was northbound on US 61 and lost control of the Grand Am she was driving before over correcting into the southbound lane. Her car then collided with a GMC Sonoma headed south.
