MURRAY COUNTY (WRCB) - A Murray County man died in a crash, and his young friend is now charged with vehicular homicide.

State troopers say 23-year-old Donald Maton died last week, of head and neck trauma.

They say 17-year-old Brian Bell was driving too fast for conditions.

He crashed into a tree on Booger Branch Road, and his car burst into flames.

Police say they arrested Bell when he tried to leave the scene.

They also say Maton died on impact, not the result of the fire.
