It's a scene all too common on our roads. Around 1:30 Saturday afternoon, a silver Chevy S-10 Blazer carrying two young men careened off the road near Eastern Boulevard on I-85 north. The unnamed seventeen year old driver of the truck apparently lost control and overcompensated, throwing the truck off the road, according to police.
"What appears to have happened...the vehicle went off the roadway and down the embankment," said Lieutenant Keith Barnett of the MPD.
The teenager was hardly injured and was released at the scene, but 20 year old David Viox of Montgomery died: "When the vehicle exited the roadway and wrecked, the backseat passenger was ejected and he was pronounced dead at the scene," Barnett explained.
