Can you help me find the title of a novel (probably Young Adult) I read sometime between 1979 and 1981?

The protagonist is a modern-day teenage girl who witnesses the death of her boyfriend in a car accident. She has trouble dealing with his death (classic PTSD, though that term wasn't used yet), while worrying that she might be pregnant. She eventually discloses to the reader that she saw him die horribly when the car caught fire. I was far too young to be reading it and so here I am, 30+ years later, still thinking about it. It was paperback, and I am fairly sure it was a new release when I read it, and I have no idea where to begin looking.
