1 teen dead, 1 teen seriously injured after car strikes tree in Kenosha County

SOMERS -- - One teen is dead and another is seriously hurt after their car crashed  into a tree in the town of Somers on Wednesday morning. Shoreland Lutheran High School President Paul Scriver said the two brothers were on their way to school. 

Scriver said 18-year-old Cameron Nahf was killed in the crash, his 16-year-old brother is injured and in the hospital. 

"It's one of those things in the morning, you hear sirens go by, and you pray that's not one of ours," Scriver said. 


Schriver said this time, those sirens led to a devastating scene. 


"It was probably the last thing I was expecting to hear this morning," said student John Marshall. 
Marshall was in chapel when school leaders shared one of their own didn't make it. 


"I was in shock," he said. 


The Kenosha County Sheriff's Office said Nahf was behind the wheel with his brother about a quarter mile away from school when he lost control, smashed into this tree and was ejected from the car.

"It really hurt to hear it, it hurt because he was one of my closest friends on the baseball team and in the school in general," Marshall said. 


What hurts Marshall the most is Nahf only had two days of class left before graduation. 


"It's a small group, 89, so everybody knows everybody," added Scriver.  


The class of 2018 has lost a friend with a bright future. Nahf planned to follow his passion to Western Technical College in La Crosse. 


"We all looked up to him on the baseball team," Marshall said. "He was a funny guy, he had a future in college baseball and everyone just remembers Cameron as someone everyone loved. We all loved him." 


School leaders said they're planning something special for their graduation ceremony on Saturday in honor of Nahf's life.
