Editor's note: A story on Saturday incorrectly attributed the cause of a traffic collision in Durham to the driver of a sedan. The accident was caused by the driver of a moped, which sideswiped the sedan. The moped driver, Nicholas Niedrich, 17, died from his injuries.
DURHAM -- A Leesville Road High School student who was riding a scooter home from a football game when he sideswiped a car last Friday has died from his injuries.
Nicholas Niedrich of Raleigh was driving a Taotao Eagle moped east on T.W. Alexander Drive near Cedar Grove Drive at 10:12 p.m. when he sideswiped a Toyota Camry going in the same direction, according to Durham police.
Niedrich, 17, fell from the moped and suffered a serious head injury. A memorial service and celebration of his life will be held Sunday at Covenant Church International on Strickland Road in Raleigh at 6 p.m., according to a Facebook page where family and friends have supported each other over the past week.
The driver of the Toyota was not injured. Police have not filed any charges as a result of the accident, but say it remains under investigation.
A previous version of this story incorrectly said the sedan sideswiped the moped.
