Hickory mourns loss of teen killed in weekend crash

A group of Hickory High School students spent the end of their three-day weekend mourning the loss of one of their own.


“Still just hard to believe that I’m going to go to school tomorrow and he’s just not going to be there,” said senior Dylan Tashjian.


Police say 17-year-old David Engelmann was driving 17-year-old Jake Robertson on 6th Street Northwest Sunday night around 7:40 when their SUV struck a curb, flipping the vehicle several times before coming to a rest in a field.
