Four students from Smithfield-Selma High School were killed in a single-car crash in Johnston County early Monday morning.
The students killed in a single-car crash, which was driven by 17-year-old Alan Lockamy early Monday morning, have been identified. Lockamy was also killed in the crash, along with 17-year-old Chris Jackson Jr., 17-year-old Freddy Seras, and 16-year-old Semaj Williams. All four individuals died at the scene of the crash on I-95.
According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, police clocked Lockamy traveling at over 100 mph. When the trooper attempted to catch up to Lockamy, they were unable to do so. Moments later, Lockamy’s Kia crashed into a tree while trying to exit the interstate at Brogden Road, causing the backseat pa*sengers to be ejected.
