Police report that Christopher Schultz, a 16-year-old high school student who suffered a car accident in Central Texas last month, has died from his injuries.
Friends and family of Schultz recently gathered for a candlelit vigil in honor of Schultz, and his family has announced that it plans to have Schultz’s organs donated to those in need.
Police reported that Schultz was the only person who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
Earlier in January, police reported that Schultz had been driving his vehicle at a “high rate” of speed, and lost control over it, veering into oncoming traffic and hitting a Dodge truck. No one in the truck suffered severe injuries, but Schultz was taken to a local hospital to treat a serious head injury. He passed away once he was transported to Texas Children’s Hospital.
Our thoughts are with Christopher Schultz’s family and friends at this difficult time.
