An 18-year-old man died after he was ejected from the pickup truck he was driving early Monday in west suburban Aurora.
Bryan J. Westcott Jr. was driving a 2002 Dodge Ram southbound in the 300 block of Woodlawn Avenue about 12:10 a.m. when the pickup left the road and struck a tree, according to a statement from Aurora police.

The home that was struck by the pickup was unoccupied at the time of the crash but sustained severe damage, police said.
