(MCT) — A 15-year-old boy was killed when he was thrown from a car that crashed into a house in Aurora early this morning, police said.

The driver and two other passengers -- all 15-year-old boys -- suffered minor injuries, according to Aurora police.

The driver had been headed north in the 2700 block of Stonebridge Boulevard around 1:40 a.m. when he veered off the road and plowed through a grassy area and hit a house in the 2700 block of Hamman Way, police said.

"We heard something and went out. We saw three kids running down the street," said a neighbor who lives three houses down from the accident. "One boy was just screaming hysterically. He had lost control of his car and crashed into the house.

"When we got down there, the young driver had flagged someone down to call 911. There was a young boy lying on the street. He was lying flat on his back, he must have hit his head. You could tell he was dead," the neighbor said, adding that the driver "was in shock."

Police said no one inside of the house was hurt. The driver of the car was being questioned by police.
