Community mourning loss of two teens killed in car accident


BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – The community of Batesville experienced a tragic loss on Monday evening when two young men were killed in a car crash.

Both were sophomores at Batesville High School. Four other teens, also sophomores, were injured in the crash.

According to the Batesville Police Department, Camdon Osborne and William Olson were killed in the car accident that happened Monday night around 10:30 on the 200 block of McHue Road. Both teens were only 15 years old. Friends and family of the teens referred to them as bright, devoted athletes and avid churchgoers.

The two were passengers in a 2014 Ford Mustang carrying four other teens. Two of those students are still at the White River Medical Center and two of them are now at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. Their conditions are currently unknown.

Friends react after teens die in car crash


BATESVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- Two teens are dead and four are injured after their car crashed into a tree in Batesville Monday night.

THV11 spoke with a friend of one of the survivors.

"It's not just the people who were involved that were affected, it's the whole community," said Olivia Tuggle.

She is one of many in this community shocked to find out that the two young men were killed in the crash.

"It was really heart breaking," said Tuggle.

She knew the driver of the car at the time of the accident. The two went to church together in Cave City.

"He's a really fun loving guy, really upbeat, pretty outgoing, kind of goofy, so I know that he's having a hard time," said Tuggle.

The young man lost two of his friends, Camdon Osbourne and William Olson, while he was behind the wheel.
