LUNENBERG, Mass. (AP) - A car crash in central Massachusetts left one teen dead and another facing criminal charges.

Authorities say 18-year-old Austin Robbins was killed early Sunday when the car he was a passenger in lost control and struck several trees on Hollis Road in Lunenberg.

The Worcester County District Attorney said 19-year-old Joseph Kapp of nearby Gardner, Massachusetts, was driving and faces charges including motor vehicle homicide and operating under the influence of alcohol. He was not injured in the crash.

Kapp is being held on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. It was not immediately known if Kapp has legal representation.

A second passenger was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Robbins was a star football player who graduated from Lunenburg High School in 2016.
