A 24-year-old man was killed in a single-vehicle crash shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said Daniel Dmitruk, of Northglenn, Colorado, was thrown from a Humvee and died at the scene in the 3300 block of West Mill Road.

The military Humvee was being driven by a 16-year-old, Matthew Matveyuk, of Velikie Luki, Russia, who had been visiting the area with his family.

Four of his siblings were in the vehicle, ranging in age from 5 to 20. A 5-year-old boy was in critical, but stable, condition Monday.

The five passengers in the backseat, including Dmitruk, were thrown from the Humvee when Matveyuk lost control on the gravel road and the Humvee rolled into the north ditch. None of the five were wearing seat belts, although the driver and a front-seat passenger were.

Wagner said inexperience driving on gravel roads may have led to the crash.
