WESTERVILLE, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska State Patrol says a 16-year-old boy has died in a crash near central Nebraska's Westerville.

The Kearney Hub reports the crash happened around 8 a.m. Friday, when the westbound pickup truck the teen was driving crossed over the eastbound lane of Highway 70 into a ditch and rolled. Investigators say Brandon Cheek, of Arcadia, died at the scene a few miles east of Westerville. The crash site is about 18 miles east of Broken Bow.

Cheek was a junior at Ansley High School. Superintendent Gordon Goodman says a crisis team was made available to students Friday and Saturday.
