BERKLEY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A teenage Rehoboth boy has died from injuries after a fatal car crash on Sunday morning.
The crash happened at 7:30 A.M. in the area of Myricks Street in Berkley. When first responders arrived, they found a vehicle rolled over in the middle of the road, according to Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn.
A 16-year-old boy, later identified as Dylan Quinn, was in the passenger seat of a Mazda pickup truck. Quinn's 16-year-old friend was driving the vehicle, officials said.
Quinn was transported to Saint Luke's Hospital in New Bedford, where he was later pronounced dead. The driver was transported to Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island for non-life-threatening injuries, D.A. Quinn's office said.

They were driving southbound when the car hit a telephone pole and a tree before rolling over and landing upside down, D.A. Quinn's office said in a preliminary investigation.
The incident is under investigation. It is unknown what caused the crash at this time.
