DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities believe a teen was driving too fast when he lost control and crashed Monday morning.

The Louisiana State Police said Brice Harris, 18, of Denham Springs died in the wreck.

The accident happened on LA 1032 (4-H Club Road) south of LA 1034 (Vincent Road) in Denham Springs around 7 a.m.

Troopers said their preliminary investigation showed Harris lost control of the 2003 Ford F-250 he was driving in a curve and went off the road.

They reported the truck went through a ditch and slammed into a tree.

Investigators said the teen was not wearing a seatbelt.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to troopers, excessive speed is considered a factor in the deadly crash. They don't yet know if there were other factors.

A sample of the driver's blood was submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab for toxicology analysis.
