CASSOPOLIS   (WKZO) --    A 12-year-old from Niles is dead and a 14-year-year suffering from serious injuries after a crash in CassCounty. 

TV-8 is reporting that the two boys had been playing video games when their parents say they  apparently slipped out of the house early Tuesday morning to go on a “joyride”.

Cass County Deputies say that the 14-year-old Brandon Burr was driving east on Bertrand Street in Milton Township just after 2 a.m. Tuesday when  he lost control of the car on ice covered pavement at high speed. 

The car struck a tree with enough force to nearly tear it in half.  

 Both boys were wearing seat belts, but it wasn’t enough. 

12-year-old Adrian Chiquito was pronounced dead at the scene.

 Burr was rushed to South Bend Memorial with severe head and pelvic injuries.
