The young driver, Alan Lee Lockamy of Archer Lodge, was attempting to exit the interstate at Brogden Road when the car collided with trees near the exit ramp. Lockamy and the front passenger were trapped inside, while the two back-seat passengers were ejected from the vehicle, leading to the tragic loss of all four individuals.

According to Lockamy’s grandmother, Kathy Lockamy, the teenager was a typical 17-year-old with a loving circle of friends and family. She expressed her anguish, revealing that she had warned him not to leave the house before the fateful incident.

The identities of the other three victims remain unknown as authorities continue their investigation.
