Jedd Cummings Car Accident- Eastern Greene High School Died : A 16-year-old motorist was killed in a car crash in southeast Greene County (a county in the U.S. state of Indiana.)
Eastern Greene student Jedd Cummings died in a car accident.
According to sources Jedd Cummings placed in the Friday football game at Linton.
Just a sophomore, and had a blazing TD run on a short pass.. and another late on the game.
This is what Tim Lee Zimmerman wrote on his Facebook timeline.
I did not want to make this post.
A really good football player from Eastern Greene High School has been killed in a one-vehicle crash on SR 45 near I-69.
Several reports give the young man’s name as Jedd Cummings. I had the game with North Knox vs. Eastern Greene in Week 2, when that young man played well for the T-Birds in a losing cause.
My mind automatically goes back to another incident, just over 5 years ago. That incident cost another potential cornerstone athlete— North Knox’s Jacob Williams— his life. Williams died in a tragic drowning, while Cummings was in a tragic one-vehicle crash.
Two young men. One a sophomore, and one about to be one. Both snatched from this earth too early. Both taken from here in tragedy.
Jedd Cummings will be remembered as a great athlete and for what could have been. Just like Jacob Williams. In death, “Jacob’s Well” charities, in Williams’ honor, has helped people worldwide. I hope, in a similar way, the loss of Jedd Cummings will do something similar.
Funeral services for Jedd Cummings will happen soon. But like Jacob Williams, I hope in death, people will remember his life. Just like Jacob Williams… 5 years earlier.
