A Sycamore Middle School student was killed in a single vehicle wreck in Cheatham County, Tennessee last night.
The report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol says the incident happened just before 6 on Ridge Circle near Ashland City. A 16-year old driver from Joelton was northbound and lost control of his vehicle and ran off the road and into several trees.
The driver and his two 13-year old passengers were not wearing seat belts at the time of the collision and one of the boys was ejected from the vehicle. The driver and one of the passengers were taken to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries, while 13-year old Cody Fields of Joelton was pronounced dead.
Police suspect excessive speed may have been a factor in the wreck.
