Officials say a teenager was killed Monday evening after a single-vehicle wreck near Pleasant View.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says a vehicle with three teens inside lost control at about 6 p.m. in the 1800 block of Ridge Circle. It left the roadway and ended up in a creek.

A 13-year-old passenger, Cody Fields, died after being ejected from the vehicle, THP said.

The 16-year-old driver as well as a 12-year-old passenger were both transported to NorthCrest Hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.

THP says none of the three were wearing seat belts at the time of the wreck.

THP says speed may have been a contributing factor in the wreck. The posted speed limit on the road is 35 mph.
