An 18-year-old man died in a crash early Friday in White County, troopers said.

Brandon Herring of Cabot was driving a Nissan south on U.S. 67 in McRae shortly before 2 a.m. when the vehicle veered to the left, then overcorrected to the right and left the road, according to a preliminary report by state police.

The Nissan struck a tree and Herring was killed, troopers said. State police did not list anyone else as injured.
