The boy who died, Jerod Wolff of Robinson, was a passenger in a pickup driven by Dillon Steinolfson, 15, of Steele. The teens were traveling south on a Kidder County gravel road on their way home from a local lake when the crash happened shortly after 9 p.m., the patrol said.

Steinolfson had moved the 1990 Ford Ranger pickup to the right side of the road as he drove up and over a hill, the patrol said. The passenger-side tires hit a soft area on the right shoulder of the road, and Steinolfson lost control of the vehicle.

The pickup veered across the road, entered the ditch and overturned. All three boys were not wearing their seat belts and were ejected, the patrol said.

Steinolfson and another passenger, Ross Schneider, 13, of Tuttle, were injured.
