Boy dies in crash of homemade vehicle

BEAUMONT, TX 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.
