lancaster-county-sheriff(AP) — A 15-year-old boy has been killed in the crash of a car full of teenagers in southeast Nebraska.

Lancaster County Sheriff’s Capt. Ben Houchin (HOW’-chihn) says the accident occurred a little after 7 p.m. Tuesday on a county road just north of Waverly. Houchin says six teenagers were in the car driven by a 15-year-old girl. He says she lost control of it on the gravel road. The car rolled at least twice and landed on its wheels in a ditch next to a cornfield.

Two of the six were ejected, including the boy who died. The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office identified him as Taylon Artman, of Eagle. The names of the others involved haven’t been released.

Houchin says none of the other teens’ injuries was considered life-threatening.
