Officials have confirmed one Carson City juvenile has passed away after spending nearly a month in critical care following the Kings Canyon crash.

The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has confirmed 16-year-old Timothy Jones succumbed to his injuries Sunday morning.

“Unfortunately the death was expected,” said Sheriff Ken Furlong.

The crash occurred Nov. 9 at 10:46 p.m. after law enforcement and paramedics responded to reports of a single rollover crash on Kings Canyon Road. Seven juveniles were in the vehicle at the time of the accident and only two were wearing seat belts. It was reported that Jones was one who wasn’t restrained. Two of the juveniles are still in the hospital with serious injuries.

The Carson City School District has yet to comment on the latest news, however, a statement is expected Monday afternoon.

Several have taken to Facebook and other social media to express their condolences.
