— An Apex teen who was injured early Thursday in a one-car wreck in Cary has died, officials said Friday.

Ja'Lyn Brean Hunt, 17, was thrown from a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero that flipped near the intersection of S.E. Maynard Road and Tanglewood Drive at about 4 a.m. Thursday, police said. He died at WakeMed.

Police said the Montero was stolen.

The driver, Daryl Torres, 19, of Village Greenway in Cary, fled the scene but was arrested Thursday afternoon. He was charged with hit-and-run, possession of a stolen vehicle and failure to appear in court stemming from a pending assault charge in Durham.

    if they even have a family. sad all the way around. sad for the family, sad about what they were doing, sad about the state of affairs that teenagers were stealing cars and that in their mind it was the "thing" to do either out of desperation, fun, thei rjob, whatever - just sad

    My condolences to the family and friends. These young people have no idea what they do to their family. Praying for all.
