The driver reportedly remained on the scene and cooperated with investigators.

North Gardens High School Principal, Dr. Laura Vega released a statement to parents and students following the news of the student’s death.


Over in Broward County, a Cooper City High School student was left with life-threatening injuries after he was struck by a Tesla.

According to BSO detectives, the preliminary investigation reveals the driver of the red 2022 Tesla Model X was traveling Eastbound on Stirling Road, when the teen on the standup electric scooter, entered the roadway and began to cross Stirling Road Northbound diagonally.

The red Telsa sustained considerable front-end damage with a dented hood and a broken front window. The driver of the Tesla remained on the scene.

Detective Diana Gourgue stated that the students did not cross a proper crosswalk and they crossed in the middle of the intersection while it was still dark outside.

“They did not go to a traffic light,” she said.

As of now, the driver is not being charged.

“We urge the parents to please talk to your kids. Let them know to not cross the middle of the street, cross where there is light. Make sure they are using the proper crosswalk,” stated Gourgue.
