Alcohol was a factor in a rollover crash in Vernon County on Thursday that hospitalized a 15-year-old, authorities reported.

At 3:39 a.m. Thursday, Vernon County received a 911 call reporting a single-vehicle crash on Highway 82 near Nelson Road in the town of Sterling, Sheriff John Spears said in a statement.

The 15-year-old boy, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected in the crash and taken by ambulance to Vernon Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Spears said.

No one else was at the scene when authorities arrived, but it was unclear if the boy was the driver, and the crash remains under investigation, the Sheriff’s Office said.
