Montgomery County authorities are investigating a fatal crash that left one person dead and three others injured, and they say the teenage driver had been drinking.

The accident happened around 2am Sunday. Details were not released, but the district attorney's office tells us 18-year-old David Wiggins was behind the wheel.

Wiggins was transported to a local hospital where investigators interviewed him. It was determined that alcohol was involved in the crash and that Wiggins had left a party at the home of a woman named Diane Kinsey.

There were three passengers in Wiggins' car. One of them died. That victim's name has not been released.

The investigation is ongoing and any witnesses with information about the party or the crash are asked to contact DPS or the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.

Officials warn that serving alcohol to a person under 21 is a crime and also may involve civil liability.

They say this is the third underage drinking-related fatal crash in this area of Montgomery County in the last few months.
