MILTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A sheriff in southwestern Michigan says a 14-year-old boy was speeding along a snow-slicked road in the middle of the night when he lost control of the car and struck a tree, killing his 12-year-old passenger.
Cass County Sheriff Joseph M. Underwood Jr. says the crash happened about 2 a.m. Tuesday in Milton Township, near Niles and just north of the Indiana state line.
Underwood identifies the dead boy as Adrian M. Chiquito of Niles. The sheriff says emergency crews took the 14-year-old driver to Memorial Hospital of South Bend, Ind., for treatment.
The hospital says it can't give any information on his condition or whether he's still being treated.
Underwood says both boys were wearing seat belts.
