Friends set up a memorial today on the side of a Brandon road where a 17-year-old boy died Friday afternoon in a rollover crash.

Tyler Stich of Brandon was partially ejected and pinned beneath a Ford Explorer when the vehicle, carrying seven people, went off the road and overturned several times, Hillsborough County deputies said. Stich was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver, Michael A. Kryder, 17, of Brandon, voluntarily submitted to a blood test, but there was no evidence of alcohol or drugs in his system, according to the sherffi's office.

The other passengers, who ranged in age from 9 to 17, received only minor injuries.

Friends and well-wishers have been sharing messages on the online Legacy Guestbook, including teacher Melissa Brown of Apollo Beach.

"I am so sorry to hear about Tyler. I loved having him in my reading class. He had the best sense of humor. We will miss him more than words can say," wrote Brown.
