Johnston County North Carolina Suffers Second Fatal Teen Car Accident

Johnston County, North Carolina has already suffered its second fatal teenage car accident this year. The North Carolina Highway Patrol believes that speed was a factor in the fatal accident of the 17-year-old high school student. The accident occurred last Thursday. The area had just endured the tragic death of an 18-year-old high school student who died one week earlier when his truck crashed off of a local road. In previous years Johnston County had a reputation for the number of teen driving accidents that occurred in the county but over the last year the number had been down.

The tragic accident occurred near Kenly, North Carolina close to the intersection of Hinnant-Edgerton Road and Hickory Crossroads Road. The 17-year-old boy was traveling on Hinnant-Edgerton Road in his 1997 Toyota pickup truck. The high school student sped off the road and was going over the speed limit at the time. As the young driver's vehicle left the road, the truck hit a ditch which sent the truck flying through the air. As the truck was in the air, it hit a tree and the vehicle flipped and landed in a front yard. North Carolina State Troopers say that speed was factor in the accident and that the teenage driver had not been wearing a seat belt.

The principal of high school where the 17-year-old attended school said the teenager was an involved student and competitive wrestler who will be missed by the school and the community. Grief counselors were made available to students at the high school. Since 2005, there have been 43 fatal teen car accidents in Johnston County.
