MONROE, N.C. — Officials said a 17-year-old North Carolina girl was killed after her Jeep went off the side of the road and flipped over.
Troopers told WBTV that Samantha Ann Windham was partially ejected in the crash Sunday night in Monroe.
Authorities said the teenager sent a text message just before the crash and had just left a Monroe pizza restaurant.
Windham was a high school senior and was less than two weeks away from graduation. Troopers said she was not wearing a seatbelt.
