MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee high school has hosted a vigil after five students were involved in a car crash that killed two and hurt the three others.
Local news outlets report that Theodore Adams says his 16-year-old son Johntae Adams was one of the two who were killed in the crash early Saturday morning. Authorities haven't released the other deceased's identity.
