TROOPERS: North Pitt Senior Seriously Injured In Crash

A Pitt County high school senior was seriously injured after state troopers say his car was going 100 miles per hour when it hit a tree.

Jermel Bouie-Gray of Greenville is at Pitt County Memorial Hospital after the accident last night around 6:45 p.m. on Briley Road. He is a student at North Pitt High School.

Troopers say the 18-year-old was heading west on the road when his 2002 Mazda went off the right, over-corrected and then went off the other side of the highway. Authorities say his vehicle struck a ditch, and then became airborne for 86 feet before hitting a tree. A trooper said the car wrapped around the tree.

Troopers have charged the teen with careless and reckless driving. No one else was in the vehicle when the crash happened.

      Well he got a second chance at life...maybe that's what he deserves. How dare you say that wreck is what he deserved. He deserved to learn a lesson and I'm sure he did. My prayers are with you AJ.

    First I would like to say to the family of the young man that my heart and prayers are with you all during this time. Secondly, yes he shouldn't have been going that speed but before you sit back and point fingers think back over your life and please tell me you have not once went over the speed limit. If you say no then I have to call you bluff. Truth be told it's not just teens who drive recklessly b/c I have witness a lot of grown ups speeding, cutting people off, riding bumper to bumper all to get nowhere. So stop sitting back in your perfect world and pray for the young man. I'm sure he has learned from this incident and God has it all under control so He doesn't need your help especially if it's not helping & encouraging the young man and his family. I pray God give all of you who had something negative to say a new heart, a more caring one towards others and remove the bitterness that you have in yours that is causing you to be so cruel to someone in a time like this. God Bless your heart!!!

    i really hope this kids makes it. But I am a little suprised by the comments being left. And not by the younger kids. How can some of you "grown ups" really sit here and say some of the things that you r saying. I bet half of you did something crazy when you were younger.... i know i did. But just b/c you are so called grown and are our of that stage doesn't mean the world grew up to. Give the kdis some slack and just thank god he is still alive.

    I am glad he is doing well as can be but he is not the only one driven at that speed he is the one that just got caught. I am watching you high school drivers slow down while coming on my road.

    In reference to Teresa...She is right! They need to take the license. That is not judging, that is truth. She was simply telling the truth. If you can not respect the vehicle give up the keys and the license. Walk buddy or catch the bus.

    when i was growing up. Driving was a privilage not a right. If some one saw you driving fast or crazy your parents new it before you got home. When you got home the car was taken from you. You had to work and save to pay for a car., if you had your own. Kids are given everything these days and they do not know how to appreciate anything.

    teens aren't the only ones that are wreck less, adults are too. and getting your license at 25? what's that going to solve? nothing. i guarantee there would be more wrecks since you say people shouldn't have a permit and what's age going to do about it? he probably wasn't paying any attention to his speed. cut him some slack. he's a good kid/student. just thank God he isn't dead. praying for you Aj!

    i think that many of our teens makes some stupid mistakes. but, we all got to learn one way or another. so therefore when we make a stupid mistake pick us up instead of bringing us down. P.s everyone has feelings.

    I'm glad to hear that his heath is fair, he's a younge adult and just happen to have made a mistake...but everything is working out for the kid and hopefully he'll learn from this mistake !! -praying for you c/o 2012
