    A teenage boy died Tuesday night and his passenger, a teenage girl, was injured after speeding down an East San Jose road, crashing into a tree, police said.

    Investigators say a white Honda Acura TSX was speeding northbound in the left lane of South White Road around 6:45 p.m. when it clipped the rear bumper of a black Hyundai Electra.

    Upon impact, the Acura's 17-year-old driver careened off the road and rammed into a tree, just north of Norwood Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

    A 17-year-old girl was transported to an area hospital with serious injuries. Police expect her to survive.

    The victim of San Jose's 41st traffic fatality of 2017 has not yet been identified.

    People with information about the fatal crash are asked to call Officer Brian McMahon at 408-277-4654.
