Brunswick County, NC (WWAY) — A teenager is dead after crashing his SUV near Varnamtown Saturday afternoon.
The Highway Patrol says 17-year-old Ryan Dilworth ran off Standbury Road coming out of a curve, overcorrected, then ran off the lefthand side of the road. He overcorrected again, causing the SUV to flip over.
Dilworth was not wearing a seatbelt. He was thrown from the SUV.
Troopers say neither speed nor alcohol played a role in the accident.
Dilworth’s father is a Holden Beach police sergeant.
