The sheriff's office says the SUV left the road, entered the ditch and rolled. Authorities say slippery road conditions likely played a role in the incident. Boike was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Boike was a junior at Tech High School and played on the St. Cloud Crush hockey team. The St. Cloud Youth Hockey Association posted a tribute on Facebook following his passing.
