HENDERSON, N.C. (AP) - A second teen has died from injuries in a two-vehicle wreck in North Carolina.

Highway Patrol Sgt. Chris Knox told local media Wednesday that 17-year-old Elijah Brown of Henderson died from his injuries. Brown had been flown to the Duke University Hospital in Durham after the wreck Saturday.

He was a passenger in the same vehicle as 16-year-old Kasi Thompson of Henderson, who died in the wreck.

Twenty-nine-year-old Ryan Lee Matthew Taylor already has been charged with second-degree murder in Thompson’s death. The same charges are expected in Brown’s death.

Troopers say Taylor failed to slow as he approached the vehicle with the victim and caused the collision.
