HANCOCK COUNTY, W.Va. - Hugs, prayers and a lot of tears were shared by a West Virginia community Monday night as three teenagers killed in a tragic crash were remembered.
Hundreds of people attended a candlelight vigil to honor the lives of Kristyn Butcher, 16, of Newell; Kaylin Blake Rice, 16, of Chester; and John Emmett Snow III, 16, of New Cumberland.
“She smiled at everybody. She was always happy and bubbly,” said Lori Butcher, Kristyn Butcher’s mother.
“It’s hard. It’s pretty tragic,” said Hannah McCartney, Rice's cousin.
The teenagers were killed on Saturday when the car they were in collided with a fire truck on Route 8 in New Manchester.
