Headteacher pays tribute to Slinfold crash victims Asa Caudill and Will Richardson

A headteacher has paid tribute to two former pupils who died in a car crash.
Asa Caudill, 19, died hours after the crash which killed friend Will Richardson, 18, on Friday evening.
The A264 in Slinfold, near Horsham, was closed for nine hours following the crash in which Jack Dimmick, 18, was seriously injured.
All three boys attended Weald School in Billingshurst.
Yesterday Peter Woodham, headteacher of the school, said: “It was with great sadness that we heard the news of a very serious car crash which led to the deaths of two young men who were previous students of the Weald School.
“The young man who was also injured in the accident, Jack Dimmick, was also a previous student and we wish him and his family well with his recovery.
“Both Will Richardson and Asa Caudill were popular within their peer group and bought a great deal of life and character to our school.
“To experience the injury and loss of young men full of so much promise and potential is devastating for a community as small and cohesive as ours.”
