Northern High School’s Anthony Devon Pegram, 17, was a passenger in a 1998 Mitsubishi driven north on North Roxboro by John Thomas Bass II, also 17, on Dec. 11, Durham police said.
Bass tried to turn left onto Milton Road when a southbound 1997 Dodge van hit the passenger side of his car, police said. The Mitsubishi spun around and hit the front of a 2004 Ford pickup truck, driven by Orsby Wesley McMillan, of Durham.
Pegram died at the scene. Emergency crews took Bass to Duke University Hospital, and he was expected to recover fully.
Bass has since been charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle and failure to yield, police said.
