A Steuben County teen was killed in a one-vehicle crash in the Town of Prattsburg. It happened around 6 p.m. Sunday.

State Police say 17-year-old Brandon Lass of Prattsburg was driving a pickup truck on Pressler Road when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road. Investigators say the vehicle went off the road and hit a tree. Lass was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the vehicle, 17-year-old Alexander Lamphear of Prattsburg, was taken to Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital to be checked over.

Troopers say speed was a contributing factor but they don't believe alcohol was involved.
