MEDICAL LAKE, Wash. - On Sunday, Medical Lake Superintendent Tim Ames sent out a release on the crash involving four Medical Lake High School students that happened on Saturday.
“We are with a heavy heart today. As many of you know, four of our students were involved in a very serious car accident on Saturday morning on their way to catch the bus for a track meet in Cheney.
Tragically, one of those students passed away at the scene. The other 3 students sustained significant injuries and were transported to the hospital. I ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they move forward in the grieving and healing process.
As a small tight knit community this tragic event has impacted all of us. It is extremely important that we come together, and exercise the highest level of love and compassion for one another.”
Ames went on to say that support services for students will be available throughout the week beginning on Monday. If you have any questions, the high school asks that you contact them for more information.
The high school track team will also be showing support on Monday and Wednesday. They ask that students, friends, and family wear yellow to honor their teammates.
The school will be holding a candle light vigil on Wednesday following the home track meet at around 6:30 to 7 p.m. The entire community is invited to attend.
