Teenager dies after SUV allegedly driven by 14-year-old boy crashes in Calgary

CALGARY — A 16-year-old boy in Calgary has died after police say the vehicle he was a passenger in, which was allegedly being driven by a 14-year-old, crashed early Saturday.

Investigators say they believe the Toyota 4Runner made a sharp left turn onto a gravel road, lost control and eventually came to rest on its right side.

The passenger died in hospital, while the 14-year-old boy who police say was driving suffered minor injuries.

Police said he was arrested on outstanding warrants and remains in custody, and charges against him are pending in relation to the accident.

They say speed is considered a factor in the accident, but not alcohol and drugs.

Police said they are still investigating and seeking to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
