14-year-old boy crashes car, 15-year-old passenger dies in Kiowa County
KIOWA COUNTY, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado State Patrol is investigating a tragic crash Saturday morning that left a teenage boy dead. Troopers say the underage driver was a 14-year-old boy.
The rollover crash happened just after 5:30 a.m. on Kiowa County Road 78 about five miles south of Towner, said CSP.
Troopers determined that a 14-year-old boy was driving at the time of the crash. No one was wearing seat belts and three of the passengers were ejected from the vehicle. A 15-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and three passengers were taken to a hospital across the border in Kansas. All five people are from Holly, Colorado, according to the release.
The crash remains under investigation, but alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor, said CSP in a release.
