Family members, friends, and members of the student body at Richlands High School in Onslow County are mourning after a horrific crash killed two teenagers Tuesday afternoon, and injured two other students. Two handmade crosses adorned with flowers rest upon the site where two Richlands High School students were killed on Coston Road. Timothy Melton, 17 years old, and 16-year-old Michael Richardson both died. Troopers say Melton tried to pass a car in a no passing zone. The two young men were hit head on by a truck. A memorial service is being planned for the students.
