According to investigators, a 19-year-old driver was on Black Creek Road between Long Branch Road and NC 210 around 9 p.m. Sunday when she hit the teen.

Investigators believe Barbour had been walking with his back to traffic in the eastbound lane and was hit from behind by the driver, Amber Stewart.
