Counselors have been made available at a Missouri high school where students, staff and a whole community is mourning the loss of one of its own. A tragic car accident occurred on a recent Sunday, just after midnight on a local roadway. A long-time resident who lives near the site of the accident stated that it is not the first tragic crash that has happened in the area, and some say the stretch of road is quite dangerous for motorists. He said that the only way to prevent more deaths is for the city to straighten the curve in the road.
The 18-year-old woman who died in the recent crash was scheduled to receive her high school diploma in the near future. She was traveling as a passenger in a vehicle that apparently failed to properly navigate the bend in the road, sending the critically injured driver to a local hospital for treatment. The soon-to-be graduate who died was highly spoken of by former teachers and friends, who said that she was hoping to go to France during then summer, then begin college classes.
