Johnson High School community members have been mourning two students killed in a two-vehicle collision in front of the North East ISD campus on Jan. 8.

According to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, the accident occurred at 3:50 p.m. on Bulverde Road and resulted in both vehicles bursting into flames.

The sheriff’s office said they were investigating the crash but would not released the students’ names until their next of kin could be notified. No other details about the incident were available as of Jan. 11.

School Principal Gary Comalander wrote to parents on Jan. 9 about the fatal incident, saying counselors would be made available to students.

“The families are in our thoughts and prayers during this tragic time,” Comalander said.



According to reports, surviving family members, friends and other students gathered at the campus over the weekend to pay their respects to their classmates after hearing about the crash.

The Johnson Parent-Teacher-Student Association said it was offering support for students and administrators.

“We offer prayers, understanding and support to our Jag community. We are here to help if needed,” the group wrote on their Facebook page.
