CHICORA, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a 16-year-old boy killed last year in an all-terrain vehicle crash in western Pennsylvania had a blood-alcohol level more than eight times the legal limit for teenage drivers.

The Butler Eagle reports (bit.ly/1UzMA8a) 33-year-old Steven Rider Jr. was ordered to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter and other charges in the Feb. 27 crash that killed Briggs Buck of Chicora.

Police believe Buck was riding on the back of the ATV in Fairview Township when the driver lost control. The driver suffered minor injuries and was charged in the crash.

Authorities say the driver, who was also 16 at the time, had a blood-alcohol level that was at least four times over the limit. Police say Rider provided both boys with beer and liquor the day of the crash.
