MAYFIELD – A 16-year-old Mayfield boy was killed in a July 4 crash on Route 30 involving two vehicles, state police said.

William Drake, 16, was taken to Nathan Littaurer Hospital, where he died, state police said.

The crash happened at about 4:20 p.m. Saturday on Route 30, near Dennie Lop Road, state police said.
