(LEX 18) — The Madison County Coroner has confirmed that a 17-year-old student at Madison Central High School died in a crash Tuesday on Oakley Wells Road.

Around 4 p.m., the Madison County Sheriff's Office received a call about an injury collision on Oakley Wells.

According to the sheriff's office, the two juveniles were traveling east when the 2003 Ford Ranger partially left the roadway of the east lane and overcorrected crossing the road.

The truck then left the roadway on the west side and overturned. The passenger, now identified as 17-year-old Edward Tribble, was partially ejected from the truck.

Tribble was pronounced dead at the scene by the county coroner. The driver was taken to Baptist Health Richmond with non-life-threatening injuries.

"As a school district anytime we lose a student, the impact is felt throughout our schools. In this case, Eddie's life touched many. His impact on the lives of others began while he was an elementary student and continues as we begin to process his loss. It is profound and we are deeply saddened. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his friends, and all those who have been impacted by his passing." - Erin Stewart, Madison County Schools
