Charges are pending against the driver of a Mustang convertible involved in a high-speed wreck in Salisbury on Sunday morning that left a 14-year-old dead.
The driver whom state troopers didnt immediately identify was going faster than the posted speed limit on Goodnight Road just before the single-car wreck, around 9 a.m., according to N.C. Highway Patrol Sgt. E.T. Suttles.
The driver was not in custody Sunday afternoon, but a state trooper was at the magistrates office filing charges, Suttles said. The exact charges were not available, he said.
The 14-year-old, whose name wasnt released Sunday afternoon because troopers hadnt notified all family members, was pronounced dead at the scene.
At least one other passenger was in the car as it sped along Goodnight Road, east of Rowan County and about 40 miles from uptown Charlotte, Suttles said. Suttles didnt have updates on the injuries to the other people in the car.
Troopers are still trying to determine how fast the Ford Mustang was going before the driver lost control.
