Dunn County Sheriff's officials say 17-year-old Thomas Krook was driving his car through the intersection of County Road C and 690th Street at around 6 p.m. Saturday night, when he failed to stop for a stop sign.

Krook's vehicle was then struck by a west bound car driven by William Thiel of Eau Claire. The 17-year-old was ejected from his vehicle and died at the scene. Officials say he did not appear to be wearing a seatbelt.

Thiel and the occupants of his vehicle were treated for minor injuries.
