PETERSBORO, Cache County — A 17-year-old boy was killed and a 17-year-old girl remained in the hospital Sunday night after the scooter they were riding ran into a parked truck.

Killed was:

Dax Olsen, Petersboro.

Olsen was driving a moped westbound on Spring Creek Road Friday night and Jennifer Howell was a passenger, according to a Cache County sheriff's report. Olsen apparently lost control, and the scooter hit a parked truck. Olsen was pinned under the truck and died at the scene, the report said.

The investigating officer determined speed and inexperience were factors in the accident.
