A passenger killed in a car wreck on Road 400 near Road 406 Friday afternoon has been identified by authorities as 18-year old Juan Lepe of Madera.

Lepe died when another teen’s newly purchased 1993 Honda spun out on a curve and struck a tree at high speed. The car’s 18-year-old driver was taken to Community Regional Medical Center. His condition is not known.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating.
