A Bakersfield teen is dead following an off-roading accident Friday evening.

The crash happened on open land off Round Mountain Road.

The CHP says two teenagers were sitting in the bed of a lifted pickup truck driven by 18-year-old Chase Sons-Thomas.

Officers say when Sons-Thomas made a left turn, he lost control, causing the pickup to land on its side.

Officers say both teens were thrown from the truck, one receiving minor injuries.

The CHP says 17-year-old Stephen Chambers died at the scene.

Three teens inside the truck, along with Sons-Thomas, also received minor injuries.

The CHP says it does not appear Sons-Thomas was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
