MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Martinsburg teenager had been drinking, was speeding and didn't have a driver's license when his car plowed into a telephone pole Saturday, resulting in the death of his 16-year-old friend, according to West Virginia State Police.
Richard D. Jones II, 18, of 320 S. Church St., was charged with driving under the influence with death Wednesday after his release from City Hospital in Martinsburg.
He was released from custody after posting $10,000 bond, according to court records.
Aaron James Setting died in the 7 a.m. accident.
Police said Jones - who had only a learner's permit - was driving south on Berkeley Station Road when the car went over the center line and clipped a station wagon.
