MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Dane County Sheriff’s Office says speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in a crash that claimed the life of a 16-year-old boy.

The crash happened at about 3:45 a.m. Saturday in the town of Cottage Grove.

Sheriff’s officials say the teen was driving a Chevrolet Sierra pickup truck northbound on Vilas Hope Road when he lost control, crossed over the southbound lanes and went into a ditch. The vehicle went airborne and collided with a tree.

The McFarland teen was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld until his family is notified.
