Support Available at Lakeville South After Teens’ Deaths
LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) - Grief support staff and clergy members will be available to students and staff returning to Lakeville South High School.
Two students were killed and two others were injured Friday in a crash not far from the school. Seventeen-year-old Jake Flynn and 18-year-old Johnny Price died after they were thrown from a pickup in which they were passengers.
Authorities say the 17-year-old driver survived the crash. Hennepin County Medical Center spokeswoman Christine Hill says he remains in critical condition Monday. The fourth teen has since been released from the hospital.
The high school plans to make buses available to students who want to attend the funerals. Price's funeral is scheduled Tuesday in Minneapolis. A funeral for Flynn will be held Thursday in Lakeville.
Dakota County sheriff's officials plan to examine the pickup Monday.
