According to North Carolina Highway Patrol, 17-year-old Jordan Bone died after the car she was riding in crashed into a tree. The accident happened along Mt. Beulah Road near Highway 16 just before 4 a.m.
Twenty-year-old Tyler Good was driving that car. Troopers say he ran off the right shoulder of the road, overcorrected and then crossed the center line of the road and crashed into a tree.
