A 17-year-old boy was killed Thursday morning in a two-vehicle rollover crash on State Route 61, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

A 16-year-old, and an adult man and woman were also injured in the crash, but those injuries are said to be non-life-threatening, OSHP said in a news release.

OSHP said Dylan Patton, 17, of Shiloh, failed to stop at a stop sign at State Route 61 and Dinninger Road at 3:19 a.m. He was driving a 2009 gray Chevrolet Silverado and collided with a 2005 black Ford Freestyle SUV.

The crash caused the Silverado to rollover into a ditch. The Freestyle went off the road into a field.

Patton died at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to OSHP. His passenger, a 16-year-old boy, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 41-year-old woman and 51-year-old man in the Ford Freestyle also suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
