UPDATE: Northside Seniors Involved in Weekend Crash Were Set to Graduate this Week, Join Military
More details have emerged regarding a car crash that killed one Northside High School student and injured another over the weekend.
Josh Lucas and Landon Davis, two Northside seniors, were reportedly driving home from a drill practice with the Alabama National Guard Sunday afternoon when their car crashed. The students were driving a 2012 Chevrolet Colorado, which according to Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Trooper Gregory Corble, "left the roadway in a curve and overturned."
Lucas was pronounced dead at the scene. Davis was taken to the hospital in critical condition, though Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa traffic reporter "Captain" Ray Allen has reportedly spoken to Davis' family, who said he's now stable and alert.
Corble added in his release that the crash occurred "eight miles west of Jasper on Alabama 124 at the six-mile marker."
Both seniors were set to graduate this week, then join the military.
Northside head football coach Chris Hilliker made a brief comment on Twitter regarding Lucas' passing. Lucas played football for Northside.
"I am heartbroken. My prayers are with Teresa, Eric and the family," the tweet read. "Josh was a fine young man and a great teammate. God bless."
