Two high school football players approaching their senior year at Randolph High School in New Jersey, Jack Timmerman and Calvin Verduga, died in a car crash near 48 Ironia Road while riding in the back of a friend’s Mustang convertible, NBC 4 New York reported on July 30.
The driver, who remained unnamed, and the front-seat passenger survived the incident, according to the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office. According to friends of the victims at a memorial gathering, the driver of the convertible acquired his driving license only this June, and he had only been driving for days before the incident happened. Although details were not released about the cause of the accident, it was suggested by some that speeding was likely a factor.
Randolph High School opened early to provide counseling for students who need it.
The attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP, extend their condolences to the friends, family and classmates suffering during this difficult time.
