The State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal accident that happened on the 2200 block of Josephine Road.

Troopers said three teens were inside a Ford Ranger pick-up truck when the truck's driver, 17-year-old Bryan Gilmore, lost control of the vehicle and ran off the road early Saturday.

The truck overturned several times, ejecting 18-year-old William Tippett, who died at the scene.

Troopers said Gilmore faces DWI and reckless driving charges.

He and the third passenger are recovering at a local hospital at last report.
