— A 19-year-old Orange County man died Monday after he was thrown from a moving car on Saw Mill Road, according to Orange County sheriff's Investigator Chan McDade.

Paylor James Daniels, of Cedar Grove, was flown to Duke Hospital, where he died from his injuries, McDade said.

Demarus Carver and Jemeison Torain surrendered Monday night, authorities said. Rodney Fearrington was taken into custody around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. All three men are charged with first-degree murder.

Around 2:45 p.m. Monday, Orange County sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle on Saw Mill Road.

Authorities, however, determined that Daniels had been thrown from a vehicle, in which he was a passenger. Witnesses said the driver sped away and left the scene.

No other information was released.
