A Clifton teenager was killed and three others were injured early Sunday morning in a one-vehicle rollover on State Highway 6 north of Waco.

Texas Department of Public Safety Senior Trooper D.L. Wilson said an older-model Dodge pickup carrying the three teenage boys and a girl was headed south about 2:30 a.m. near Chapman Road, between Valley Mills and Lake Waco, when apparently a mechanical failure on or near a wheel or axle caused the driver to lose control. The vehicle rolled several times, he said.

One boy was dead at the scene. The others were taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center, reportedly in stable condition, he said. Wilson said all were wearing seatbelts. It was not reported whether the deceased youth was the driver.

His name was being withheld Sunday pending notification of next of kin.
