The accident happened on Morris Road in Wilmot Township, just before 1 a.m.

The driver, a 17-year-old from Sugar Run, was ejected from the 1986 Chevrolet pick-up truck, after he lost control going around a curve, hit a stone wall, then flipped the truck.

State Police said he suffered moderate injuries.

Two passengers were trapped inside the truck after it flipped over.

The 16-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene. State Police have not yet released his name.
