GREENFIELD, Ind. – A 17-year-old was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Hancock County over the weekend.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department was called to the intersection of CR 300 N and CR 400 East on Saturday after reports of a crash. 

Police say a 2002 Chevrolet Mailbu was headed eastbound on CR 300 N when it veered off the road and rolled. 

Both the driver and passenger, a 19 year-old and 17 year-old, were thrown out of the car. Neither were wearing seat belts. 

The 17 year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The 19 year-old was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies said drugs are thought to have been a factor.
