CHELSEA – Joseph Christopher Honea, 17, was killed in a single car accident Sept. 8 just after midnight.

Burchfield said it will be a few days before the report is made available, but a group of traffic accident investigators is working on the case.

There were no other cars involved and no other passengers in the vehicle.
