Three boys were travelling in a Toyota Starlet at around midnight Sunday before the driver lost control, hitting a concrete drain and rolling, with the driver and a passenger thrown from the car.

A 15-year-old was declared dead at the scene, with the 14-year-old passenger taken to hospital with serious injuries and another 14-year-old suffering only minor injuries.

“This is a tragic incident and support is being provided to the families of the children and to the first responders and members of the public who were on scene.”
