BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) – An Oak Island teenager is dead after crashing his car.

It happened on Hwy 133 near Orton Plantation in Brunswick County around 10:30 last night. 18-year old Aaron Michael Burke, Jr. was driving toward Southport when his camaro crossed the center line, ran off the road and hit a tree.

Emergency crews airlifted him to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, where he later died. Troopers say speeding and alcohol did not play a role in the accident.

    My thoughts and prayers are with this boys family, esp his mom. My bf lost her son at the age of 21 due to a car accident. I have watched her life change dramatically. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and heartache of losing a child. RIP Aaron.

U may b gone but never forgotten.
