15-year-old Tyriq Grant

The funeral arrangements have been set for an Ed White High School student who died in a hit-and-run crash on Wednesday.

Services will be held for Tyriq D. Grant, 15, at We’re For Jesus Ministries, 5000 N. Main St. at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Arrangements are being handled by J.E. Fralin & Sons Funeral & Cremation Services, 5065 Soutel Drive.

Neighbors say Tyriq's mom dropped him off at Ed White High School on Wednesday, but he had other plans. He hopped in the car with two friends and left campus. They got into a fender-bender with a car at Lennox Avenue and Lane Avenue, then took off. While fleeing at a high speed, they lost control and crashed, killing Tyriq.

The two boys who were in the car with Tyriq are also students at Ed White.
