The Carson Baseball Boosters Club posted a short message on Facebook page that says:
"We know you will visit and look over your teammates. As our boys approach the field this season, they’ll do it your name. We know that you and God will guide them and be their shield. We love you TJ3."
Nevada Highway Patrol says that on November 9th around 10:45 p.m., the high-school aged juveniles were inside a Dodge Nitro on Kings Canyon Road when they crashed. Five were not wearing seat belts, two were ejected with life-threatening injuries.
NHP says two teens remain in critical condition.
As Carson High School junior Jasmine Riediger told us at the time, "They made a mistake and now they are all very injured." She went on to say, "It could've happened to anybody, anyone of us could've been driving and lost control of a car."
Carson City School District Superintended Richard Stokes released this statement:
“Our hearts ache for all the families and individuals involved in the car accident in Kings Canyon. We learned yesterday from law enforcement that one of our students passed away. Throughout the day today, the administration at Carson High School has provided and will continue to provide, as needed this week, grief counseling and support for students and staff. As more is learned about a memorial service, we will pass that information along.”
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with medical costs.
