CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- A 14-year-old boy who'd taken a family car without permission was killed and two other children injured in a rollover accident near Casa Grande.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said the teenager was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected when the vehicle rolled Monday evening.

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

Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney was unsure whether the children were related.

Authorities said the car rolled several times after the boy lost control.
