A 15-year-old dies after a crash Sunday evening in Phillips County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened just before 8:00 p.m. on County Road West 1300 and Santa Fe. Eli Lowry, 15, of Prairie View was going north in a pick-up truck.

Investigators say Lowry was unable to negotiate a curve and lost control. His truck went into a ditch and rolled. He was taken to a hospital where he died. Investigators say he was not wearing a seat belt.
