Parents to Jaidon Smith, one of the deceased Walter Johnson High School graduates establish scholarship for autistic students.

Troy and Jessica Smith, parents to Jaidon Smith, one of the two Walter Johnson High School graduates killed in a fatal Hardy County, W Va crash, have established a scholarship for students with autism in memory of their son.

“Our son’s death is what can bring hope to so many children and parents to be that extra. We’ve exhausted our resources trying to find all the extras and we know how hard it is and so we want to take some of that from those parents and the students,” said Troy Smith.

Camelle Gagne, 18, of Kensington, and Jaidon Smith, 18, of Silver Spring, died when the car Gagne was driving went off the road and over an embankment on Route 48 between Baker and Moorefield, in Hardy County, at about 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Hardy County Sheriff’s Office said.
