A 17-year-old driver was killed early Thursday morning after crashing in a construction zone in Lake Elmo.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. on westbound Highway 36 in what the State Patrol says is a closed-off construction zone just west of Lake Elmo Ave. 

The driver, identified as Michael P. Schweiger, of Roseville, was driving a Chevy Equinox when he hit a dirt pile and the vehicle rolled, causing him to be ejected. 

Schweiger was not wearing a seatbelt, the State Patrol said.

Two other boys, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, were taken to Regions Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Both of them were wearing their seatbelt, the crash report says.
