The eastbound lanes of I-275 on Sunday were shut down for more than 6 hours after a fatal accident.

The single-vehicle crash happened around 5 p.m. near Kellogg Avenue. Officials say an adult was driving an SUV with three teenage passengers when it lost control, hitting a guardrail and then a wall.

One teen was killed in the accident. Police say the teen was the only person in the vehicle not wearing a seatbelt. He was ejected from the rear window of the car. 

The victim's identity is being withheld pending notification of family.
