As a result of Wells’ death, SCSD’s crisis team will be available with credential counselors for Springfield High School or Springfield-Clark CTC students at SHS on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the auxiliary gym.
Wells’ passenger, Traymonta McKinney, 20, of Springfield, was transported to Springfield Regional Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to troopers. As of Monday afternoon, she was not listed as a patient at SRMC.
According to OSHP Lt. Brian Aller, Wells was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
“It’s the easier and most effective safety device we have in vehicles today,” said Aller. “Seat belts save lives.”
Speed was also a factor in the deadly crash, Aller said.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office and Springfield Twp. Fire and EMS also responded to the crash. OSHP is continuing to investigate the incident.
