The crash of a homemade four-wheeler that did not have brakes led to the death of a 15-year-old Beaumont boy. Police Officer Randy Stevens on Friday identified the victim as Djuan Stewart.

Police say Stewart was critically hurt Wednesday afternoon when the vehicle hit a parked car. The teen was transported to a Beaumont hospital, then to a Houston hospital, where he died Thursday afternoon.

Damion Stewart told KFDM-TV that he and his brother built the four-wheeler, which the driver had to downshift to slow or stop since the vehicle never had brakes.
