Wow, this blog is just full of good news lately.
From the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle:
The nine Fairport High School graduates had a day of relaxation planned: some sunbathing, some swimming, some boating.
With scorching temperatures expected to reach into the 90s Wednesday, a day at a Keuka Lake cottage seemed the perfect opportunity for the nine young women to relax together before they headed their separate ways for college.
But the outing ended in a fiery tragedy Tuesday night when a sport utility vehicle carrying five of the teens slammed head-on into a tractor-trailer in Ontario County, as the other four friends watched in horror from a vehicle following behind.
Anyone getting killed, especially in a car crash, is a sad event; this time is compounded by the number of young women, all close friends, being lost at once. I can’t start to imagine what the survivors in the car behind them must be going through, to have seen the sight unfold in front of them.
Thoughts go out to friends and family.
