Chatham County teen dies after one-car wreck

Posted December 24, 2009

— A Chatham County high school student died Thursday morning of injuries suffered in a car wreck last week, a spokesman for Duke University Hospital said.

Aaron W. Hudson, 16, a student at Siler City's Jordan Matthews High School, was driving on Silk Hope Road Friday afternoon when his pickup truck ran off the road and hit a tree. Investigators with the Chatham County Highway Patrol said snow-covered roads contributed to Hudson's crash.

Troopers said there was another person riding with Hudson at the time of the wreck, but did not identify that person or indicate whether her or she was injured.

No other cars were involved.

    Christmas will never be the same for that family, thoughts and prayers.

    Know this family really well and had just been down this stretch of Silk Hope road not an hour or so before this wreck; it was pretty slippery. Really misleading too; parts of the road were just fine while others were terrible.

    Thoughts and Prayers go out to the Hudson family. We were praying for a miracle. I'm so sorry he didn't make it.
