TURBOTVILLE — The Warrior Run community is in mourning following the death of a high school student in a car accident over the weekend.
According to social media posts, Hunter Reynolds was airlifted to Hershey Medical Center following an accident over the weekend. He then died in hospital. He is noted in social media posts as the son of Holly Beck and Bill.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss the Warrior Run community suffered today and express our condolences to Hunter’s family,” Superintendent Dr. Alan Hack wrote in an email to The Standard-Journal.
“Advisory services will be available to staff and students throughout the day (Monday),” Hack continued. “We also ask our community to remember Hunter’s family and our entire Warrior Run family as we mourn the loss of a young Defender.”
In an email to the Warrior Run community, Hack wrote that Reynolds was in fifth grade.
The grief surrounding Hunter’s death was noted in a post on the Warrior Run Youth Football Facebook page, as he was an athlete involved in the program.
“Hunter is now one of our angels to watch over our boys and his mother,” the post read. “Surely his ticket to every Alabama sideline game is there. The school has been informed and has already started to set up a crisis team for all your children. »
In his email to the community, Hack encouraged parents to tell their children about the tragedy.
“The way we as adults deal serves as an important role model in helping young people deal with unfortunate events like this,” he wrote. “It’s important that they know they have support when they talk about their feelings.”
Details of the crash have not been released by law enforcement. Social media posts indicate that Hunter’s grandmother was also hospitalized following the accident.
