The Dawson Springs, Kentucky community is mourning the loss of one of their own.
18-year-old Logan David McKnight of Dawson Springs died in the hospital last week after he and two others were involved in a crash while on their way to watch a basketball scrimmage game in Trigg County.
Logan was a 2021 graduate of Dawson Springs High School, where he participated in several sports programs including the school's basketball team. After graduating from high school in May, Logan was working to continue his education as a freshman at Western Kentucky University.
The two other individuals who were in the car with Logan at the time of the crash were taken to the hospital. One of them was treated and released, while the other is still recovering from surgery.
"All three of these young men are true Dawson Springs Panthers to the core," a message from Dawson Springs High School Superintendent Lenny Whalen said.
A public funeral service will be held for Logan in the Dawson Springs High School gymnasium on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 2:00 p.m., followed by a burial ceremony at the Shyflat Tabernacle Cemetery in northern Christian County.
The school says that masks will be required during Logan's funeral service due to the large crowd that's expected to gather.
