West Meck Student Killed In Crash

CHARLOTTE, NC– Counselors will be at West Mecklenburg High School tomorrow after a 15-year-old student was killed in a car crash this morning.

Heaven Seay died when the driver lost control of the car on Windy Grove Road just after nine this morning. The car went off the road and hit a tree. Investigators say speed was a factor.

All passengers inside the car were students at West Mecklenburg High School.

Parent Maria Gonzalez said, “I feel bad, I believe the girl that passed away was a year older than my son. Next year, he’ll be going to West Meck. It scares me to think what the kids are doing nowadays.”

The other passengers in the car were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. No charges have been filed yet in the crash.
