LA PLATA, Md. (AP) -- The Charles County Sheriff's Office says a second person has died after a pickup truck crashed into a tree in La Plata.

Deputies say 17-year-old Micah Ryon Enstrom of Hughesville died Wednesday. He had been flown to a hospital after the Oct. 18 crash.

Enstrom was a passenger in a truck driven by 22-year-old Gabriel William Maxwell of Waldorf. Police say Maxwell lost control of the vehicle near a sharp curve and hit a tree.

Maxwell was pronounced dead at the scene. Deputies say a second passenger in the truck has injuries that are not life threatening.

The accident remains under investigation.
