JACKSONVILLE, Fla., - A 17-year-old boy died and two other teens were injured in a crash early Saturday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Naafay Fazli, 18, was driving south on the Southside Connector exit ramp to Regency Square Boulevard at 1:05 a.m. Troopers say Fazli failed to maintain his lane and his Mustang left the road overturned several times before landing on the embankment of the entrance ramp.

Fazli suffered critical injuries and was taken to Memorial Hospital. Passenger Lenny Espinal-Medina, 17, died at the scene. A second passenger, Jason Ortueta, 16, was taken to UF Health Jacksonville with serious injuries. 

Charges are pending, according to FHP.
