LENEXA, Kan. (AP) - A suburban Kansas City teenager is dead after falling from a moving Jeep Wrangler driven by a 15-year-old boy.

The Kansas City Star reports that 17-year-old Ean Schulmeister of Olathe, Kansas, was injured Saturday in Lenexa, Kansas. He died Monday.

Schulmeister was a back seat passenger of the Jeep, which also included the driver and three other passengers.

Police say Schulmeister was standing in the Jeep, which had its top and doors off. Witnesses told police he was holding onto a strap when the strap broke and Schulmeister fell.

Police say the driver had a valid restricted license that does not allow transporting non-sibling minor passengers. None of the passengers were siblings.



Police will forward a report to prosecutors, who will decide if any charges should be filed.
