SCOTT COUNTY, Va. (WJHL) – Police are investigating after a car crash left a teenager dead this weekend.
According to a press release from Virginia State Police (VSP), officers were called to the scene of a crash around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
When they arrived at a property in the 300 block of Flatwoods Road, investigators found that a Geo Tracker had been driving down a gravel driveway before it ran off the road and flipped over an embankment.
The release said that the driver, a 15-year-old male from Clintwood, died at the scene.
Since the crash occurred on private property rather than a public road, the VSP release said no crash report will be completed on the incident.
