The incident occurred on Sunset Terrace just west of Whiteville near Legion Stadium shortly after school was dismissed for the year, following an early dismissal due to a water outage in the city.

The deceased student has been identified as Kaiden Powell, with his twin brother Kainen Powell currently in critical condition. Family members told local reporters that the car the four teens were in ‘careened into a ditch and flipped several times until it landed a few hundred feet away.’

Kamari Smith is also receiving treatment for his injuries in the hospital.

During the 2024 graduation ceremony at Whiteville High School, a moment of silence was observed in memory of the four students involved in the accident.

Superintendent Jonathan Williams expressed that the ceremony was a mix of emotions, as all the students were part of the Whiteville High School community.

The crash is still under investigation.
