Police lights

A Providence Forge teenager died early Friday after the pickup truck he was driving hit several trees off U.S. 60 in New Kent County, according to state police.

At 2:40 a.m., state police responded to a single-vehicle crash on eastbound U.S. 60 near King Boulevard. Police said a 2012 Toyota Tacoma driven by 18-year-old Jace T. Jefferson ran off the left side of the road before hitting some trees. He died at the scene.

Police said Jefferson was not wearing his seat belt and that fatigue was being considered a factor.

The crash remains under investigation.
