A Florida teen was killed in a roll-over accident late Wednesday in Tipton County.
The Kokomo Tribune reports 19-year-old William Lamoreaux was found by emergency crews lying in a field unconscious at the crash scene on State Road 19 and Tipton County Road 400 South. Investigators say Lamoreaux lost control and flipped the vehicle over several times before coming to rest in a ditch. Lamoreaux was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected.
A 14-year-old female passenger was taken to IU Health Tipton Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Officials say speed and roadway conditions were factors in the crash.
