Posted: Updated:

Seven people were in the car when it ran off the road and hit a power pole, killing passenger Zachary Stoyer, 13, of Cofield in Hertford County.

His mother, Amber Osborne, 31, of Cofield, was driving the car, said trooper W.A. Joyner.

The 2003 GMC SUV crashed on NC 42 just west of the community of Trap shortly after 12 PM on Saturday.

It is not determined yet whether Osborne is facing any charges. Police interviewed her while she was in the hospital.

All six of the surviving passengers treated and released at the hospital, said Joyner. They were all adults.

Stoyer's body was taken to the medical examiner's office in Greenville for an autopsy. No word on when the autopsy will be conducted, said Joyner.

It is not known where the driver was coming from or where they were going to.

The car wreck is not weather-related, said Joyner.
