A 17-year-old boy believed to be from Queensland, has died after crashing a car into a power pole in Boggabilla. 

The teenager had driven from Queensland in a Ford Falcon shortly before the crash on Yeoman Street outside a motel around 1am. 

An 18-year-old man who was a passenger in the car was taken to Goondiwindi Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. 

It is not yet known what caused the driver to crash, but officers from the New England Police District are urging anyone with information on the incident to contact police. 

More to come.
