He crossed over several streets, went through a parking lot and went over a 150-foot embankment. The car hit several trees and eventually rolled over and landed on its roof.

The 19-year-old was ejected from the vehicle and killed. His identity has not been released.

Two female passengers were able to get out of the vehicle and climb back up the hill. They were taken to a local hospital, where they were treated and released.
