Teen killed in early morning collision

Shelton Sturdivant, 19, of Charlotte, died early Saturday morning after a head-on collision with another vehicle.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, the wreck occurred shortly after midnight in the 5500 block of Kimmerly Glen Lane, near the intersection of Keyway Boulevard.

Sturdivant was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala east on Kimmerly Glen Lane when officials said he crossed the double yellow center line and struck a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pickup that was heading west.

Sturdivant and the driver and passenger from the pickup were all transported to Carolinas Medical Center, where Sturdivant was pronounced deceased.

The driver and passenger of the truck were treated for non-life threatening injuries and police do not believe the driver of the pickup was impaired. Any impairment of Sturdivant is currently unknown, according to officials.

CMPD’s Major Crash Investigation Unit continues to investigate but said excessive speed does not appear to be involved at this time. Anyone with information about this crash is asked to call the Major Crash Investigation Unit at 704-432-2169.
