COLUMBUS, Ohio – A 17-year-old Gahanna Lincoln High School student has passed away after being involved in a crash Saturday night.
JaShawn Scott was a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in the crash shortly after 10 p.m. at the intersection of Sunbury Road and Morse Road.
Police say a woman driving a Toyota Camry collided with an Audi A6.
Scott, who was in the Audi, was taken to Mount Carmel East Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police said he passed away on Tuesday.
In a statement, the school district said Scott was a junior and a "strong student-athlete."
"He was a recognized and talented member of Gahanna’s football program, who had a contagious smile and an energetic and positive spirit," the district said.
Police said Scott's mother wanted people to know that he elected to be an organ donor when he was 13.
The driver of the Camry, who was later identified as 40-year-old Kumari Biswakarma and her passenger and daughter, 24-year-old Anju Biswakarma, were pronounced dead at the scene. A third passenger was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
