TRUCKEE, Calif (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- A Truckee High School student has died after a rollover crash yesterday evening on Sierra County Road.

Around 6:25pm, California Highway Patrol says, for reasons still under investigation, Corey Adam Neill, 18, drove his 1995 Chevrolet pickup at a speed that was unsafe for the condition of the dirt/gravel roadway. CHP says, due to Neill's speed on the rough roadway, he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle went into a ditch and then overturned. 

As the vehicle overturned, passenger Andrew L. Metlenko was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Metlenko was not wearing a seat belt.

Alcohol was not a contributing factor to the collision.

The information in this story is incorrect... The proper info is here: Andrew L. Metlenko, 18, of Reno, was pronounced dead at the scene by Calfire after the 1995 Chevrolet pickup he was a passenger in overturned at about 6:20 p.m. Metlenko, who was ejected from the truck, was not wearing a seat belt, according to a California Highway Patrol press release. Metlenko was a senior at Truckee High. Neill, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered no injuries.

'Sierra County Road' seems kinda un-specific as to location. Perhaps they weren't wearing seat belts because it didn't seem like a Vehicle Code violation risk on a dirt road, yet being ejected from a moving vehicle is pretty unpleasant.
