STONEBORO, Pa. (WKBN) — It was a solemn night Thursday for the Lakeview community as they gathered to remember three whose lives were lost in a car crash last week in Mercer County.
As hundreds of community members filed into the football stadium, they walked by ribbons with the students initials and a table with their pictures displayed.
James M. Harrison, 18, of Grove City; Harmony Leige, 17, of Mercer; and Aliya Harvey, 17, of Jackson Center, died in the crash on the night of Oct. 5, according to Mercer County Coroner John Libonati.
Once the vigil began, they turned the stadium lights off and said prayers, reflected and sang a song. The vigil, which start at 8 p.m., lasted a half hour.
The Lakeview High School Student Council and Students for Charity invited the community to join.
The football team will play Mercer Area Junior/Senior High School as scheduled, but homecoming festivities have been rescheduled to next Friday in conjunction with Senior Night.
