JUPITER FARMS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a teen has died after he was thrown from his dirt bike in a late-night crash.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report says Liam Maclachlan crashed into a pickup truck early Sunday morning, just after midnight. Multiple media outlets report the 17-year-old was thrown to the side of the road and died from his injuries.

Investigators say alcohol or drugs are believed to have been a factor in the crash.

The driver of the pickup was not hurt.
