Trooper: Teens' SUV speeding in fatal Loxley wreck

LOXLEY, Ala. (AP) - State troopers say a sports utility vehicle crowded with nine teenagers apparently was speeding before it wrecked near Loxley, killing a 15-year-old and sending seven others to hospitals.

Troopers said Charles Williams of Summerdale died late Sunday afternoon when the SUV overturned on Interstate 10.

The 16-year-old driver, Turner Little of Foley, was in stable condition Tuesday at University of South Alabama Medical Center.

Six others were sent to area hospitals with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.

Troopers said only two of the teens was wearing a seat belt, including the lone occupant who was not injured.

The initial investigation indicates the SUV was speeding when it passed a vehicle, overcorrected and went out of control, flipping several times.
