(Memphis) A Mitchell High School student was killed in a one-vehicle accident about a mile from the school Thursday morning.
It happened on Weaver, just north of Levi.
The driver and another passenger also go Mitchell.
All three had for some reason left the school campus Thursday morning.
A man who was dropping off his sister at the school just before 10 a.m. said he remembers seeing the same car near the school and said it just missed his car.
Police say the accident happened at about 10:30 a.m.
The school district wouldn’t comment on this particular case, but said students are not allowed to leave campus without being signed out by a parent.
Police have not released the name of the girl killed in the crash, but other students said she was a senior.
Word spread quickly around the school about what happened, and grief counselors were brought in to comfort students.
“Everyone broke down crying. My classroom was quiet,” said Kharia Robinson.
Kharia Robinson said she was in ROTC with the girl.
Kharia’s sister also knew the girl and can’t believe she’s gone.
“She was really loved that is why everyone is affected because like she was a really cool person, ” said Keirney Robinson.
The driver of the vehicle was also taken to the hospital.
The other passenger was not hurt.
The name of the girl who died has not been released.
Police say it’s not known if the driver will be facing any charges.
