Greene County High School remembers teens killed in crash

Greene County High School held a special assembly Thursday morning to honor three students killed Wednesday in a single vehicle accident near Leakesville.

Thursday morning, school principal Scott Bray led the assembly, which was also attended by grief counselors and area ministers. Officials say the counselors will remain at the school as long as they are needed. Students, faculty, staff, and friends gathered in the gym of Greene County High School to remember Dillion Reid 16, Henderson, 15, Stephen Nicholson, 15.

In addition, two other students were seriously injured in an accident on Bushy Creek Road. Russell Green, 17, and Joseph Lister are hospitalized at University of South Alabama Medical Center in mobile.

All five teens were ejected from the pickup truck when it ran off the road, hit an embankment, and flipped several times.
