Family members and Forsyth County high school students are mourning the loss of a teenager killed in a weekend crash.

Peter Ian Roberts, 17, of Cumming, died in a single-vehicle crash early Saturday, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Roberts was westbound on Ga. 306 when investigators believe he crossed into the eastbound lane, over-corrected and crashed into a mailbox on the driver’s side of the vehicle, Gordy Wright, GSP spokesman, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The crash happened around 12:35 a.m., Wright said. Alcohol was not a factor in the wreck, Wright said.

Roberts was a senior at Forsyth Central High School and worked part-time at Stars and Strikes, according to his Facebook profile.

Visitation for Roberts will be held Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at McDonald and Son Funeral Home and Crematory in Cumming, according to an online obituary. A funeral service will be held Wednesday at 4 p.m. at The Vine Community Church, also in Cumming.

The church posted the following message on its Facebook early Sunday:

“Our church family is mourning the loss of an amazing young man — Peter Roberts. Peter ALWAYS had a smile on his face and lived a life of a true follower of Jesus by ALWAYS serving others before himself. You will be missed Peter.”
