With her parents' permission, certainly. Without her parents' permission she can apply to the court for emancipation and, if granted, then be able to move out.

This law varies by State. In NY a girl must be emancipated by the courts in order for her to move out. If she is not emancipated then the parents are still legally responsible for all debts incurred by said 16 year old...Rent, Hospital, Doctors etc...and the parents are still responsible for that child's actions. Parents can still be sued unless child is emancipated.
