HINGHAM (CBS) – A Hingham teen has died following a tragic accident just a week after graduation.

Hingham police said 18-year-old Sean Ryan climbed onto the rear bumper of a friend’s car. It traveled a short distance to a driveway, but the teen apparently fell off and was seriously injured.

Ryan, who had just graduated from Hingham High School a week earlier, was taken to South Shore Hospital, where he died Saturday night.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope reports.

Police said unopened alcohol was found in the car, which was driven by 19-year-old Nicholas O’Keefe of Hingham, but they said O’Keefe was not impaired or under the influence.

Police added that they expect to file charges when their investigation is completed.
