A passenger in a fatal accident was released from the hospital.
Michael Brandon Davis, 18, of Denver, was released from Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte on Tuesday night. Davis was a back-seat passenger in a single-car accident early Tuesday morning that killed 17-year-old Jordan Bone, of Sherrills Ford.
Davis was ejected from the vehicle after driver 20-year-old Tyler Scott Good, of Newton, was going about 70 mph on Mt. Beulah Road in Sherrills Ford at 3:48 a.m. Tuesday. The speed limit is 45 mph on the road.
N.C. Trooper S.R. Lineberger said Good's Mitsubishi Eclipse went off the right side of the road, lost control, crossed the centerline, went over to the left side of the road, flipped over and hit a tree. Good and Bone were wearing their seat belts, but Davis was not.
Good was airlifted to CMC in Charlotte on Tuesday, following the accident. A CMC spokeswoman said there is no hospital record for Good. He was reported in critical condition Tuesday afternoon.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident, and Lineberger does not think alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash.
No charges have been filed in the accident.
