A Friday night football game ended in tragedy for four families in and near Norcross. One teenager was left seriously injured in a car accident and three others were killed. The accident is thought to have been caused primarily by speeding.
According to reports, four teenagers left Friday’s football game in a Toyota 4Runner. The driver of the Toyota is thought to have been traveling at high speeds when the vehicle came upon a slower one in the roadway. To avoid colliding with that car, the driver of the Toyota swerved and ended up traveling down an embankment.
The driver of the vehicle, a student at the local high school, was killed in the accident along with two of his passengers, also students. A fourth student was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center and listed in critical condition. The school district issued a statement Saturday:
“We have been notified that four Meadowcreek High School students were involved in a car accident last night. Tragically, three of the students did not survive and the fourth has been hospitalized. The students involved in the accident, three seniors and one junior, have been very involved at the school. We know the loss of these young promising lives will be difficult for students and staff, alike.”
