The names of the teenager killed and of the 16-year-old driver of the vehicle, whom a state patrol spokesperson said suffered minor injuries, have not yet been released.

The spokesperson said the identity of the 15-year-old will be released at 3 p.m. Friday. The driver's name will not be released because he is a juvenile and it remains an ongoing investigation.

Another passenger, 16-year-old Tyler Jeffrey Wild, was also described as having suffered injuries that were not life threatening.
