Iowa teen dies when caught between car and fence


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Police say a 17-year-old is dead after he was pinned between a car and a fence in an accident in Des Moines.

The deceased has been identified as Logan Bryan Oglesbee of Des Moines. He was a recent graduate of Roosevelt High School.

Police say around 4:40 p.m. on Friday Oglesbee and a friend pulled into the steep driveway at a friend's home. After they exited, the car rolled backward.

Oglesbee tried to stop the car, by jumping onto the back bumper. The car eventually hit a fence and Oglesbee was pinned between the vehicle and the fence.

Police say he was pronounced dead on the scene.

Sgt. Lori Lavorato says police have classified it as an accident and don't plan to open a criminal investigation.
