The 17-year-old boy, who was not identified by OHP was driving a pickup Wednesday evening when the truck departed the roadway to right. The driver overcorrected and the pickup overturned two times, according to OHP, and the driver was ejected approximately 24 feet.
The boy has since been identified on social media as Braiden Williams. His back was broken in the accident as well as his sternum and five ribs.
According to OHP, he was not wearing a seat belt.
