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.
