PLAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A 16-year-old who was severely injured in a car crash that killed his older brother has passed away from those injuries.

A 2008 Ford Crown Victoria was traveling north on Middlebranch Avenue when the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve due to speed, according to the highway patrol. The vehicle traveled off the east edge of the road, then the west edge, striking a utility pole, then a large tree where it turned onto its right side.

The vehicle then came to rest on the front steps of a home.
