A teenage couple sadly saw their life end after their Jeep was T-boned by a semi-truck at a Tennessee intersection Thursday night.
Austin Moffitt was a star football player and linebacker from Tennessee. He was dating Alexis McCann.
The two were in a Jeep Patriot when they failed to stop at an intersection. That is when an 18-wheeler driven by 62-year-old Jeffrey Miller from Alabama T-Boned the vehicle killing both of the high school sweethearts.
Both Moffit and McCann were wearing seatbelts as well as the truck driver.
The truck driver was not injured.
Both Moffitt and McCann graduated from Sequatchie County High School in May.
“So heartbroken to hear the news of the loss of a former player and students of mine,” a former teacher wrote on Facebook. “Austin Moffitt was such a great young man and player.
“Alexis was such a sweet girl and a great student. She worked extremely hard. This is such a devastating loss for the community. They will both be missed by many. Pray for these families.”
“Austin was a wonderful young man and an outstanding football player. He will always be remembered in our hearts. Alexis was his biggest fan,” Sequatchie County Football Quarterback Club, of which Moffitt was a member, wrote on Facebook.
