ORANGE, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California high school student has died after crashing a golf cart into a pillar on campus.

Authorities say the 15-year-old boy suffered major injuries in the crash Monday at El Modena High School in Orange. He died at a hospital.

His name wasn't released.

KABC-TV reports that the boy was a special-needs student supervised by an aide who tried to stop him from using the cart, which was reserved for school staff.

An investigation is underway.
