16-year-old killed when pickup crashes into tree

LAKESIDE, Calif. — A 16-year-old boy was killed and three other teens were injured Saturday night in a crash in Lakeside, authorities said.

Around 10:45 p.m., the boy was driving three other 16-year-olds westbound on Willow Road, east of Ashwood Street and appeared to be speeding when he lost control of his pickup truck, according to California Highway Patrol. The 2003 Chevrolet Silverado veered off the road and hit a tree. The driver, identified as an El Cajon resident, died at the scene.

The three passengers were taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital. The boy in the front passenger seat, also from El Cajon, was treated for major injuries and the boy and girl in the backseat, both from Lakeside, were treated for moderate injuries.

Investigators believe only the front and right rear passengers were wearing seatbelts.

It was not yet known whether alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.

In an email to parents, the principal of El Capital High School said two of the teens were students and two were former students, and grief counselors would be available Wednesday for students and staff.
