Friends and Family Mourn the Loss of a Kingston Senior

Posted:

KINGSTON, OK- The small town of Kingston, Oklahoma is mourning the loss of a third student killed just this school year alone. Meredith Saldana has more on this heartbreaking story.

The accident happened early Wednesday morning.

Family members of the Kingston senior tell us he left his girlfriends house just after midnight, Wednesday morning and never made it home.

The victim was 17-year-old Joseph Harrison, a senior at Kingston High School and the FFA president.

Friends and family say he was passionate about the FFA and was liked by everyone who knew him.

According to reports, the accident happened on County Road Rockcreek, a mile south of Kingston.

The highway patrol arrived on scene around 6 o'clock, Wednesday morning.

They tell us Harrison's truck ran off the road and struck a guard rail before rolling 2 times.

Harrison wasn't wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the truck.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Harrison's family says he was a kind, caring person and they're devastated by their loss.

"I just can't say enough about him. He was a good kid, very lovable, tender hearted, he just loved people. We're going to miss him this just isn't right," says his Aunt.

Services are set for Friday at 2pm at the Watts Funeral Home in Kingston.

Of course, students in Kingston are on spring break this week.

The district will have counselors available when they return next week.
