Norcross, Georgia High School Mourns Classmate Killed in Car Crash

By Grant Law Office on May 3, 2012

Students at a Norcross high school gathered together recently to mourn the loss of one of their own, a 16-year-old girl who lost her life in a car crash on the school’s prom night, according to an article in the Gwinnett Daily Post.

The 16-year-old was riding with the car’s driver, and both were going to a post-prom party after the end of their prom. The car was traveling north on Steve Reynolds Boulevard in Norcross when it crossed the center line and skidded into the southbound lane, where it was hit head-on by a car coming in the opposite direction.

Both the 16-year-old and the driver were thrown from the vehicle. The driver was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is currently listed in critical condition. Two other passengers, who were riding in the back seat, were treated for minor injuries and then released to their parents.

Investigators say it was likely neither of the people in the front seats was wearing a seat belt. So far, investigators do not believe that alcohol played a role in the accident, but they are still trying to determine whether or not excessive speed was a factor.
