FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Hundreds of students and staff of North Forsyth High School gathered about 8 a.m. Dec. 11 to pray at the school's flagpole for the families involved in a two-car wreck a day earlier.

The Dec. 10 crash killed a 17-year-old North Forsyth High School Junior.

Four others were injured.

Kyle Alan Robins, of Gainesville, was pronounced dead at the scene of the Hendrix Road crash.

His passenger, Joel Knost, 16, of Cumming, was transported from the scene by ambulance to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, according to Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Traffic Specialist Unit Cpl. David Garrison. Knost was treated and released.

Robins, who was driving a 2002 Pontiac Gran Am, was southbound on Hendrix Road, just off of Ga. 369 in North Forsyth County at about 4 p.m. Dec. 10, Garrison said.

"The vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it came into the curve at the Dexter subdivision," said Garrison. "The vehicle then hydro-planed and the driver lost control, striking the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado truck that was traveling northbound on Hendrix Road."

Garrison added that the impact cut the Pontiac Gran Am in half.

The driver of the truck, Brandi Densmore, 30, of Cumming, was not injured in the collision. In the vehicle with Densmore was Allyson Jameson, 18.

She was transported to North Fulton Hospital with minor injuries.

Densmore's two children, ages 2 and 7, were also in the car. The 7-year-old, Luke, is a Cumming Elementary School student.

They were both taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, where they were treated and released.

Tyler Densmore, who was also injured, is a special education paraprofessional at Cumming ES.

The collision remains under investigation, Garrison said, all occupants of the cars were wearing their seatbelts.

Investigators say alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

Additional counselors were at the school soon after the crash and again on Tuesday, Dec. 11 to assist students through the difficult time.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) organized the prayer at the pole at 8:00 a.m., with the majority of the student body attending, said Jennifer Caracciolo, a Forsyth County School spokeswoman.

"Please keep these families and our students in your thoughts and prayers," she said.

    The article headline is "Speed, road conditions killed North Forsyth student." This is not true. Speed and roadway conditions were contributing factors. The cause of the accident was the fact the driver was driving too fast. I only point this out because too many young drivers lose their lives each year because of their actions behind the wheel. We need to get the truth out so young drivers can understand speed, alcohol, drugs,texting while driving, playing with the radio etc...can take their lives very quickly. This is a tragedy beyond comprehension and I hope the family finds peace and comfort anyway they can and I pray that other students will be more cautious while driving. By all accounts this was a very fine young man.
