GARNER, N.C. — A West Johnston High School student was killed in a wreck on White Oak Road in Garner early Saturday, state troopers said.

Troopers said 17-year-old Shantoya Howard, of Willow Springs, was traveling in the 8400 block of White Oak Road, near a bridge that crosses Interstate 40, when her vehicle ran off the road and hit a tree at about 4:32 a.m.

The crash killed 17-year-old Ariel Hughes, who was riding in the passenger seat and not wearing a seatbelt, troopers said.

Howard was in good condition late Saturday at WakeMed, a nursing supervisor said.
