UPDATE: Deadly crash in Grady County

GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

The Memorial Day travel weekend proved deadly on south Georgia roads. A Grady County teen who just graduated from high school was killed in a two car crash..

A Facebook post showed a picture of 18-year-old Kedric Bell shortly after graduation from Cairo High School. Just a matter of hours later, we would die in car crash.

 State troopers say he was ejected from a car Sunday on State Road 112 in Grady County.

It happened around 3 PM.

Troopers say 24 year-old Casey Harold was driving south in a 2007 Nissan and was turning left into a driveway, when 18 year-old Shaunta Dismuke, who was also driving south in a 1981 Chevy Monte Carlo, attempted to pass her on the left and the two cars collided.

Troopers say the Monte Carlo went into a ditch and flipped several times. Bell, who was in the front seat of that car, was ejected. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Dismuke and another passenger in his car were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The crash remains under investigation.  Authorities say charges may be pending.
