A 17-year-old has been charged in a high-speed wreck that killed another teen and injured two others early Sunday morning in Forsyth County.
Investigators said his actions caused the death of a 17-year-old and the injuries of two other teenage boys, 15 and 18. The wreck happened shortly before 1:20 a.m. at the intersection of Kelly Mill Road and Rockingham Run, sheriff's Deputy Robin Regan said
Investigators said a white 2011 Dodge Ram was traveling east on Kelly Mill Road at a an excessive rate of speed when the driver lost control.
The driver was unable to negotiate the curve in the road at Rockingham Run an the truck left the roadway, sliding sideways across the sidewalk and into the grass shoulder, Regan said.
The rear passenger side door struck a telephone pole, and the impact caused the unrestrained 17-year-old to be ejected, Regan said. The teen died at the scene.
The three survivors, including the driver and 18-year-old Delton Cook, of Cumming, were transported to North Fulton Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Officials have declined to release the names of the other two passengers because of their ages. Di Millo was treated and released. He was being held without bond at the Forsyth County Detention Center, Regan said.
The conditions of the other teens were not released.Authorities are investigating the crash and say further charges are pending.
While the deceased boy’s name has not been officially released, friends and classmates have been mourning his loss on Twitter throughout the day, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
