One Michigan boy is dead and another hospitalized with serious injuries after a late-night joyride on Tuesday ended in a crash.

Brandon Burr, 14, snuck out with his best friend, 12-year-old Adrian Chiquito, for a joyride in his grandfather's car near Niles, Mich.

Police told WOOD-TV 8 that Burr was speeding when he lost control of the vehicle on slick roads. They crashed into a tree just after 2 a.m. about a mile from the home their two families shared. Witnesses told the news outlet the force of the accident split the car in half.

The boy's families said they had no idea the boys had snuck out until the police where knocking on their door. Chiquito died at the scene. Burr suffered head injuries and a shattered pelvis, but appears to be improving.
