VINTON, LA (KPLC) -

A 17-year-old Vinton resident died early Thursday morning following a single-vehicle crash near the intersection of Niblett Bluff Road and Parish Loop, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said at around 1:40 a.m. an SUV was traveling west on Niblett Bluff Road when it traveled off the road and struck a tree.

Myers said Torrie J. Granger, a passenger in the front seat, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and a backseat passenger suffered moderate to severe injuries and are in stable condition at a local hospital.

Myers said alcohol is not believed to be a factor but a toxicology report will be conducted as mandated by state law.
