ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — Authorities say one of six people thrown from a Jeep in a single-vehicle crash in southwest Virginia last week has died.
Virginia State Police say 18-year-old Caden N. Bailey succumbed to his injuries Friday at a Roanoke hospital.
Bailey was one of six occupants in a Jeep Wrangler that crashed shortly before 4:30 a.m. last Sunday on Thomas Jefferson Road in Bedford County.
Investigators say the 17-year-old driver and five passengers, ranging in age from 18 to 20, were all ejected from the vehicle. None was wearing a seat belt.
Charges are pending.
