The small town of Milford is grieving after the loss of 14-year-old Trevyn Roth.

"Trevyn was a great kid, he would do anything for anyone," his cousin, Briana Roth, said.

Seward County deputies were called to 175th and Denton Road for a single vehicle crash just after 7 Thursday night.

They say an underage female lost control of an SUV and rolled it several times. Trevyn was ejected and died at the scene.

He was an 8th grader at Milford.

"A great kid, great personality. Has an infectious smile and grin. Trevyn was good friends with everybody," Milford Superintendent, Kevin Wingard, said.

Deputies say the driver of the SUV didn't have a permit or license. She and another passenger, Trevyn's cousin, Brendan, were taken to Bryan West.

Channel 8 spoke with Brendan's sister, Briana, on Friday.

"Him and Trevyn were two peas in a pod," she said. "You always saw them getting in trouble together, messing around. I mean, they're best friends and cousins, too."

Briana says Brendan is still recovering and coping with the loss of his best friend.

"He remembers the accident pretty clear. He's devastated. He's trying to stay strong for the rest of the family, but he's hurting inside," she said.

A memorial sits near the scene of the crash. Flowers, a note, and an antler because Trevyn loved hunting.

While Milford still processes what happened, the schools have offered counseling for students.

"Have to believe there's a reason for this. We may not understand it or like it," Wingard said.

"That's all who we have right now, is family and friends," Sarah Roth, Trevyn's cousin, said.

The crash is still under investigation. The sheriff's office says they're not sure if seatbelts were used.
