WINDSOR, N.C. -

A high school senior dies on his way to graduation.

Highway patrol troopers say it happened today just before noon in Bertie County near the intersection of Republican Road and Cow Track Road.

They tell us 17-year-old Deonta Whitaker was riding to the ceremony with his 24-year-old brother, Anthony Whitaker. Anthony was driving when he lost control and crashed.

Troopers say both brothers died. They believe excessive speed was a contributing factor in the wreck.

School officials tell us Deonta was planning on attending Elizabeth City State University this fall.
