A motorcycle accident in Tallahassee has taken the life of a teenager.

It happened on Deerlake Road in the Killearn Lakes neighborhood around 7:30 Monday night.

Deputies say 18-year-old driver Justin A. Ferrell lost control, slammed into a tree and was thrown from the motorcycle. He was airlifted to Tallahassee Memorial but did not survive.

Investigators found a helmet at the scene, but right now it's unclear if the teen was wearing it at the time of the crash.
