The wreck occurred at about 6:35 a.m. on Bluewater Drive in southeastern Davidson County.
Police said the driver was speeding and hit a mailbox but didn't stop. The teen then turned a corner and plowed into the trees, sending debris 40 feet.
A woman who was walking her dog said she had to jump out of the way to avoid the vehicle.
