Authorities say a 17-year-old from northern Louisiana was killed when a pickup driven by another teenager crashed.

The News Star reports Tyler Ledford of Eros was a passenger in the cab of the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which happened about 2:55 a.m. Saturday in Union Parish.

State police say the pickup, driven by a 17-year-old from Downsville, lost control, ran off the road and hit several small trees. The truck rolled several times before landing on its roof.

The driver was thrown from the cab and two passengers, ages 16 and 13, were thrown from the bed of the pickup. They were treated for minor injuries. Another 16-year-old in the cab was not ejected and was treated for moderate injuries.
