A Pasco County crash killed a 16-year-old boy Friday and injured his three passengers, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
Kevin Monaco of Port Richey died at the scene, an FHP report says.
The crash occurred about 2:55 p.m. at Lake Forest Circle and Forest Lake Drive in Port Richey, the report says.
Monaco was headed south on Lake Forest Circle in a 1996 Dodge Caravan when he lost control in a left curve at Forest Lake Drive. The vehicle drove onto the shoulder of Lake Forest Circle, where it struck a tree and was engulfed by flames.
Three passengers, including two teenage girls and a boy, were hospitalized. Two of them received serious injuries.
The teenagers attended Ridgewood High School in New Port Richey.
