The crash took place in 2017. Johnson, who was accused of driving under the influence at the time of the wreck, entered guilty pleas to charges in April 2018.

Duffy was the driver of the car. Mundorff, like Duffy, was a senior at Great Bridge High School. They were heading back to Chesapeake from Virginia Beach when the crash took place.
