Class of 2018 graduates Josh Leviston and Tyrell Washington suffered injuries after they were in a serious accident when the car they were in drove into the back of an 18-wheeler on North I-35 near Braker Lane at 11:30 p.m. Thursday night.

Doctors are hopeful that both Leviston and Washington will recover from their injuries.  Jennifer Jenkins Carson, a former McCallum parent and football booster club member, posted Sunday night that both graduates had been released from the hospital. Tonia Leviston, Josh’s mom, has started a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay for their rehabilitation expenses.

The accident occurred after the two 2018 graduates left the Taco Shack Bowl football game at House Park.

All of us at MacJournalism join the entire McCallum community in wishing Tyrell and Josh a full and swift recovery.

    I overall like this article and thinks that it brings a good amount of awareness and support to the people were in the wreck as well as for the friends and family of the victims. I also like that it mentioned the gofundme, however I think that the author should of added more information about the whole situation. But overall I think that it was a really good piece.
