On the night of November 30, a 16-year-old boy suffered fatal personal injuries after being thrown from a car on N.C. 87 in Spring Lake after a collision with another vehicle.
According to a Fort Bragg spokeswoman, the crash occurred at 6:45 p.m. at the intersection of N.C. 87 and Nursery Road.
The crash was investigated by military police. The intersection is off post, but the military reservation property is adjacent to the highway.
The spokeswoman said that the names of the drivers in the crash were not yet made available.
