A lake area teenager is dead and three others injured…two seriously…following a one-car accident shortly before 10:00 Friday night on eastbound River Road near the Osage River Bridge in Miller County.

The highway patrol says it happened when the car driven by the 16-year-old boy ran off the road, struck a tree and overturned.

The 16-year-old, from Brumley, was wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead a short time later at Lake Regional.

Two passengers, another 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old both from Lake Ozark, were seriously hurt while a 15-year-old girl from Eldon escaped with minor injuries.

All three of the passengers were also taken to Lake Regional.
