Police said 17-year-old Brandon Gleason of Enosburg was a front passenger in a Jeep when it collided with a pickup Friday night on Route 105 in Enosburg.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said Gleason later died at a St. Albans hospital. Gleason was a senior at Enosburg Falls High School and was the state’s Mountain Division player of the year this past season.

Three other teenagers in the Jeep were treated for injuries.
