Teen Killed

A single vehicle crash Sunday morning leaves a community in mourning - Word from Charleston police - they responded just after 11:15 a.m. Sunday to a single vehicle crash off Quarry Ridge Road and found a 2006 Lexus convertible coupe over the hillside on its top. The 15 year old driver's name has not been released - police say he lost control of the vehicle, struck a utility pole and a tree on the edge of the road before flipping the vehicle over the hillside. The driver was wearing a seatbelt and was restrained in the crash. He had no visible injuries. The passenger - fourteen year old Drew Morton was ejected from the car - he died from his injuries. The teen driver had a learner's permit, and that allows 15-year-olds to practice driving if accompanied by a licensed adult driver. Another stipulation of driving with a learner's permit is that all occupants of the vehicle must wear seatbelts. The boys were alone in the vehicle, and Drew was not wearing a seatbelt.
