— A 17-year-old girl died in a crash early Tuesday after she turned in front of a truck in Edgecombe County, according to troopers.

Camille Snyder, of Greenville, was by herself in an SUV when she turned in front of truck driver Charles Short Jr. of Delaware, who T-boned the girl's vehicle, troopers said.

The crash happened around 1 a.m. on North Fountain Road near Pinetops.

Short was taken to Heritage Hospital in Tarboro, and the extent of his injuries was unknown. He does not face any charges, troopers said.

Snyder was wearing her seat belt, but authorities said they believe alcohol might have been a factor in her crash.

At least five local teens have died in crashes in the past few weeks.

A spokeswoman for Pitt County Schools said Snyder had attended D. H. Conley High School as recently as the 2009-10 school year.
