At least three people are injured following a single-vehicle crash in North Carolina. A trooper with the North Carolina Highway Patrol explained that the driver of the SUV carrying the victims lost control of the vehicle shortly before 11:00 a.m., causing it to flip over onto the shoulder of an Interstate highway. While the trooper said there are no fatalities as of yet, several of the SUV's occupants sustained serious injuries in the wreck.
A 16-year-old high school student will face a number of serious charges after being involved in a North Carolina car wreck that left his 17-year-old female passenger dead. Police claim the fatal accident occurred as the teenager was driving a Jeep at a rate of around 75 miles per hour, 45 miles per hour over the speed limit. The driver was unable to control his vehicle at such speeds and veered off the road before crashing into a tree. Police say neither of the teenagers were wearing seatbelts, causing the driver to be thrown from the car upon impact.
