State Police are investigating a deadly crash in Steuben County.

The crash happened Saturday night in the Town of Bath. Troopers say 18-year-old Nikolas Tillinghast was driving on Bonny Hill Road near Wind Fall Road when he failed to stop at the intersection and struck a guard rail. We're told his pickup truck then became airborne, struck a pole and came to rest in a culvert.

Tillinghast was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say speed is believed to be a factor.
