MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - One teen is dead and two other people were injured after a single-vehicle crash in Montgomery Sunday.

According to Sgt. Jarrett Williams, around 7:30 p.m. officers and medics were called to Boone Street and Potomac Avenue after a vehicle crash. When they arrived on the scene they found a 1996 Ford Explorer with multiple people injured.

Williams says two of the passengers were found to be suffering from non-life threatening injuries. A third passenger, 16-year-old Shacoyka Thomas, was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and later pronounced dead.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured, according to Williams.
