In the Matter of A.N.C., Jr., 225 N.C. App. 315 (2013)

Held: 
Affirmed in Part
Remanded
Reversed in Part

The evidence was insufficient to adjudicate the thirteen-year-old juvenile delinquent for reckless driving under G.S. 20-140(b). The evidence showed that the juvenile was driving a vehicle registered to his mother at the time of the wreck and that the vehicle that he was driving collided with a utility pole. However, there was no evidence showing that the collision resulted from careless or reckless driving. The court concluded that the “mere fact that an unlicensed driver ran off the road and collided with a utility pole does not suffice to establish a violation of [G.S.] 20-140(b).”
