CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) — A 14-year-old boy who'd taken a family car without permission was killed and two other children injured in a rollover accident in Arizona.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says the 14-year-old wasn't wearing a seatbelt and was ejected when the vehicle rolled Monday evening near Casa Grande, about 50 miles south of Phoenix.

A 9-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl in the car were hospitalized with serious injuries.

Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says he's awaiting a report from investigators and couldn't immediately say whether the children were related.

Sheriff Paul Babeu (BAB'-yoo) says the car rolled several times after the boy lost control. Babeu says the youth took the family car and that his lack of driving experience caused the crash.

Arizona issues driving permits starting at 15.5 years and licenses at 16 years.
