According to investigators, 16-year-old Walker Barnes left home in his 1996 Jeep Cherokee. At some point, the teen turned around and headed back toward his house.
He was traveling west on Redwine Plantation Drive when the Jeep ran off the left side of the road, striking a median and an oak tree. After the collision, the SUV caught on fire and burned. Barnes was pronounced dead at the scene, investigators said.
