Police say 17-year-old Lyndsay Barker, who is from Newton, was driving south on Route 94 when her car veered into northbound lanes in Frelinghuysen around 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

State Police spokeswoman Trooper Alina Spies tells The Star-Ledger of Newark the car struck a tree stump, a fence and several trees. Spies says Barker was ejected before the vehicle burst into flames.

Barker was pronounced dead at the scene.
