SUV flies off a bridge, crashes down a hill

Posted: Updated:
GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A truck flew off a bridge early Thursday morning after Troopers say the driver was speeding.

A passerby first alerted emergency crews just after midnight when an SUV was seen running off a bridge and overturning down the hill.

The State Highway Patrol arrived on scene at the 1900 block of Alexis-Lucinda Road near the town of Stanley and found the car. 

Medics took the driver to the hospital to get checked out, but Troopers report he just had bumps and bruises.

The passenger was treated and released at the scene of the crash.

The SHP says two things are certain: the SUV was going way too fast, and alcohol was a factor.

Officials report the driver was underage.

It's unclear if any charges are going to be filed.
