The teen was a passenger in the front seat of the 2003 Ford F-150. Rushing said it appears the truck was headed west on Smith Lake Road and crossed over the left lane, struck a tree and rolled near Callender Road.

The call came in to 911 shortly before 6 p.m.

The 15-year-old male driver and two backseat passengers, the driver’s 12- and 7-year-old brothers, were transported to KDMC, he said.

Rushing said the accident remains under investigation.
