Two teens were injured after Highway Patrol says one of them flipped a car in front of a high school in Martin County Monday afternoon.
Troopers say 18-year-old Tavin Sheppard was driving a 1994 Honda Accord, and was going over the speed limit in front of South Creek High School about 5:00 p.m. when he lost control on Highway 903 and flipped the car. Sheppard and his passenger, 17-year-old Chauncey Andrews, were taken to Martin General.
The teens were later taken to Pitt County Memorial. Andrews was treated and released. A condition isn't available on Sheppard.
Both Sheppard and Andrews are listed on the South Creek High School basketball roster.
Troopers say Sheppard is charged with speeding, operating without a license, driving left of center, and not wearing a seatbelt.
