The initial investigation revealed that a 2012 Dodge Challenger, driven by a 17-year-old juvenile, was traveling eastbound on U.S. Hwy 84, near Natural Gas Road. For reasons still under investigation, the juvenile driver lost control and exited the roadway, before colliding with a concrete retaining wall.
