NC teen’s license revoked hours before fatal wreck www.privateofficer.com
CONCORD, NC May 22 2012 - Police say a 17-year-old had his license revoked for speeding, five hours before getting back behind the wheel and dying in a head-on crash.
They say they stopped and arrested Joshua Stanish of Charlotte Friday evening on Highway 49 in Concord for driving 85 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Stanish then went before a magistrate, who revoked his license.
Then around ten o’clock that evening, officers say they spotted Stanish behind the wheel again. He refused to stop and then struck two cars, head-on, on Cox Mill Road, near the intersection with Edenburg Lane.
Five people in those two cars he struck were hurt, including a Harrisburg couple and their two sons.
North Carolina Highway Patrol and Concord Police say they’re continuing to investigate.
