Lexington, County, SC (WLTX) -- A driver is facing charges in connection with a collision that took the life of a White Knoll High School teenager Friday morning.

State troopers charged Michael Gray, 60, with felony DUI resulting in death and possession of a controlled substance.

State troopers say Gray's SUV collided with a 2002 Pontiac on Old Barnwell Road at White Knoll Way at 7:45 AM. 

Lexington County Coroner Harry Harman identified the victim of the crash as 15-year-old Brandon T. Mayo of Lexington. Mayo was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gray was taken to the hospital for his injuries.

Students of White Knoll high school quickly organized a moment of silence to honor Mayo. He was a 10th grader at the school.

A spokesperson for Lexington School District One says additional counselors were at the school Friday to help students.
