Danville Teen Dies In Car Crash

    Chatham, VA-- A car crash on Sunday in Pittsylvania County left 17-year-old Daniel Vincent dead and another 17-year-old charged with reckless driving.

    State Police say the crash occurred just before 8:45 p.m. on Marion Road in Chatham. They say a 2009 Chevrolet was traveling northbound when it ran off the road on the left side, and struck an embankment before it overturned.

    Police say Vincent died at the scene.

    ABC 13 was in contact with his close friend who said they were too emotional to go on camera, but said Vincent was a good person, easy-going, was always cracking jokes and loved to see people smile.

    The principal of Tunstall High School said Vincent recently graduated from the school.

    Someone has placed flowers in memory of Vincent at the scene of the accident.

    Police say Vincent was not wearing a seat belt.
