UPDATE

The Becker County Sheriff's Office released the name of the teenager killed in a one-car rollover in Becker County early Wednesday morning.  Jayme Honrud, 15, of Erhard, Minnesota was killed.

Officers say Honrud was in a car with 4 others when it rolled just before 3:00 a.m. on 280th Street, also known as Vergas Trails Road, south of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. 

"No alcohol was involved, we know that for a fact. It wasn't excessive speed. The were probably unfamiliar with the road," explains Becker County Sheriff Kelly Shannon. "We estimate the speed at 40 miles per hour... It was a sharp corner then off the road and into the ditch and it rolled over."

The four other teenagers in the vehicle were treated for minor scrapes and bruises and released shortly after.

A vigil for Jayme Honrud is being held Wednesday evening at the Pelican Rapids high school at 6:30 p.m.  School counselors will be on hand.
