FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. - Classmates gathered at a flag pole outside North Forsyth High School Tuesday morning to remember a classmate who died in a car crash on Monday.
Seventeen-year-old Kyle Robins was driving a sedan on Hendrix Road near Highway 369 when the car collided with a pickup truck, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said.
The collision split the car in half and killed Robins. His passenger, another student at North Forsyth, was taken to North Fulton Hospital in critical condition. He has since been released.
The school's athletic director said Robins was a well-liked athlete who played baseball and golf.
Authorities said they were on their way home from school at the time of the crash.
The driver of the pickup truck, school employee Brandi Densmore, was not injured. Her three passengers, Densmore's neice, 18-year-old student Allyson James, and Densmore's two sons, were all treated and released.
The Sheriff’s Office said speed and Monday’s wet weather contributed to the crash.
