By AMANDA BUCK - Bulletin Staff Writer
A teenager died Monday after being thrown from a vehicle in a wreck on Mountain Valley Road, according to the Virginia State Police.
Anthony Glenn Cline, 16, of Axton, was riding in a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Anthony Justin Capo, 19, also of Axton, when the wreck occurred shortly after 5 p.m., said Sgt. Robert Carpentieri. Cline was transported to Memorial Hospital in Martinsville, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, the sergeant said.
Carpentieri said the Chevrolet ran off the right side of the road and overturned just south of Mountain Valley's intersection with Route 615. Cline was not wearing a seat belt, but Capo was, Carpentieri said.
Trooper J.D. Byrd is investigating. Further details were not available late Monday night.
