A Pittsylvania County high school senior has died after falling out of a moving vehicle, just days before she was set to graduate.
North Carolina State Police said Tunstall High School student Brandi Beckelheimer, 18, was in an SUV with four other teenagers driving home from Hyco Lake in North Carolina on Sunday around 8:30 p.m. They said Beckelheimer was hanging out of the front passenger window when she fell out and onto the pavement.
Alcohol was involved in the accident, according to state police. Investigators have drawn blood from Beckelheimer to determine if she had been drinking.
