Gordon Lee high School students are preparing to lay a classmate to rest on Sunday.

17 year old Jordan Queen was heading home from wrestling practice in the rain on Wednesday when he lost control of his pickup, over-corrected and hit a tree on Lee Clarkson Road near Chickamauga. Initially Queen was going to be taken to Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga, but the serious nature of his injuries led to sending him to a closer hospital, Erlanger at Hutcheson hospital in Fort Oglethorpe where he died.

Queen celebrated his 17th birthday on Nov. 5. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Sunday p.m. at the First Baptist Church of LaFayette
