A 16-year-old boy died Sunday after the vehicle he was riding in hit a tree in south Charlotte.
Alexander Mundt was in the backseat when the driver lost control of a Toyota Highlander shortly after midnight in the 5000 block of Colony Road near Sharon View Road, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said. The 17-year-old driver, Abigail Mcgaha, and another passenger, Hannah Greene, 17, were in stable condition at Carolinas Medical Center, authorities said.
CMPD said the vehicle was moving at high speed when it left the roadway and Mcgaha corrected back to left and slid across the northbound lanes of traffic on Colony Road. The SUV went off the street again before colliding with the tree.
