NEW INFO: Grandparents Had A Bad Feeling Before Fatal Crash

The grandparents of a teenager they helped raise, who was killed in a car accident this week, say they had a feeling something bad was going to happen.

Justin Keith's grandparents say they didn't feel right when the 18 year-old they helped raise walked out their door for the last time Monday.

Keith's grandmother, Eleanor Watson says she had an uneasy feeling that eventually turned their world upside down. Watson says, "That day he started to go out the door, he come past me and he started to go out and I looked at him and I said well where's my hug and he come back and he hugged me and kissed me and I told him I loved him and he said I love you too, but that day I had, I just had an uneasy feeling.

The Hubert teen was killed later that day when the car he was in turned into the path of another car.

A small memorial sits at the corner of the intersection where the fatal accident happened.

Keith's grandparents say the Swansboro High School senior had dreams of going to college and becoming a psychologist. They say teachers and students have helped them cope with the loss this week.

Visitation for Keith will be held Thursday night from 6 to 8 at Jones Funeral Home in Swansboro.

A memorial service will be held Friday at 2pm at Freedom Way Free Will Baptist Church.
