One of the five individuals injured in a single-vehicle crash on March 3 died on Friday.

Roderic Scott, 17, of Montgomery, died at Baptist South Medical Center, according to Sgt. Steve Jarrett with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

Scott, who was not wearing a seatbelt and was fully ejected, was a rear-seat passenger in a 2007 Toyota Camry that left the roadway and overturned, Jarrett said.

Two other rear-seat passengers, who were also unrestrained, were ejected from the vehicle as well.

The driver and a front-seat passenger were wearing seat belts and were not ejected, according to Jarrett.

The vehicle was traveling northbound when one of the individuals was ejected across the southbound lanes, one landed in the southbound lanes and one landed close to the vehicle.

All occupants were injured and transported to Baptist South Medical Center.

The crash occurred at 10:10 a.m. on Interstate 65 northbound at the 220 Mile Marker, 1.5 miles north of Jemison.

Nothing further was available as Alabama State Troopers continue to investigate.
