— A 17-year-old boy died after he and his stepbrother were ejected from a car during an accident near Greensboro Sunday, the state Highway Patrol confirmed.

Speed appears to have been a factor in the single-vehicle wreck on Sedalia Road in Sedalia, about 4 miles east of Greensboro, troopers said.

Around 6:15 p.m., Gregory Dickery II, 20, drove a Ford Mustang at 60 mph while going around a curve in a 45 mph zone, troopers said. The Mustang ran off the road, hit a ditch and overturned.

Dickey and a backseat passenger, Devin Leggett, 17, were ejected from the car. Neither was wearing a seat belt.

Leggett was transported to Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro, where he was pronounced dead.

Dickey and the other two passengers, Keeley Dillon, 18, and Casey Tucker, 17, remained at Moses Cone on Monday morning.

Officials said no charges have been filed in the accident but they were still investigating.

Alcohol does not appear to have been involved, troopers said.
