Two Northwest High School students have died as a result of injuries sustained in a vehicle accident on Monday, Oct. 28.
Eric Ahmed, Timmy Johnson and Dillon Kozerski were the best of friends. They were all 17 years old and seniors at Northwest High School, as was their friend, Matthew Norman.
The four young men were spending the day together on Monday, Oct. 28, which was a teacher's workday. On their way back from getting some lunch, Ahmed, Johnson and Kozerski rode in the back of the pickup truck that Norman was driving.
While on Bethel Church Road in Kernersville, Norman ran off the road, overcorrected, crossed the road on the other side and hit two trees. Upon impact, Ahmed, Johnson and Kozerski were thrown from the back of the truck.
Ahmed died at the scene and Johnson was airlifted to Baptist Hospital, where he remained in critical condition until passing away on Sunday, Nov. 3.
