FUQAUY-VARINA, N.C. (WNCN) – An 19-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries when the vehicle she was driving went off the road and into a pond Tuesday morning in Fuquay-Varina, officials said.

The Highway Patrol said Alexis B. Mcleod, 19, of Fuquay Varina was driving a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix around 9:50 a.m. when it left the roadway and ended up in Johnson Pond off Maude Stewart Road near Tram Road.

Mcleod was transported to WakeMed with life-threatening injuries, officials said.

The Highway Patrol said speed appears to be a factor in the crash but it is still under investigation.
