MAGNOLIA, Texas - An 18-year-old man was killed Monday in a crash in Magnolia.

The crash was reported just after 9 p.m. on Highway 249 near Wood Trace.

Investigators said a witness reported that the teen was driving a Chevy Tahoe at a high rate of speed in the northbound lanes of Highway 249 as friends of the teen were beside him in a pickup truck.

The witness said the teenager's vehicle ran off the end of the merging lane, crossed the right two lanes, hit the curb and then flipped over.

A nurse stepped in to help the teenager, but he died from his injuries.

The victim’s name has not been released.

No one else was injured in the crash.
