Traven Keigley



Traven Keigley, 16, was killed in NC. Driver of the other car had no license. According to Mecklenburg County records, Jose Santos Tobias has been charged before with NO license.

State Highway Patrol confirms one person was killed Wednesday in a multi-vehicle wreck on Interstate 40.

Troopers say a red 2004 Pontiac traveling north on I-85 spun out of control and hit a white 2007 Nissan.  The Nissan hit another vehicle, went over the guard rail and down an embankment. One person in that car was pronounced dead at the scene.  

Troopers say 16-year-old Traven Keigley, from Ohio, was killed after being partially ejected from the vehicle. Authorities say Keigley was a backseat passenger and was not wearing his seat belt.

Four others in the Nissan were taken to UNC hospital with injuries.  Authorities did not provide information on the extent of the injuries.

The driver of the Pontiac, Jose Santos Tobias, of Charlotte, has been charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and no operators license.

Two lanes of I-40 east near the I-85 split were closed while crews cleaned up the scene.
