Tragedy in Warren: Vigil held for teens killed last Sunday in a SUV

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Sunday marks one week since a SUV, filled with eight teenagers, flipped over into a pond killing six.

Saturday night, dozens of people gathered for a candlelight vigil in Warren's Courthouse Square.

Pastor Larry Stephens led the ceremony in prayer.

Friends of the victims, and even those who did not know them, expressed their sorrows.

"They did not deserve that and just let God be with them," said Zackery Aikens, a friend of the victims.

"My heart is so heavy right now because of that happening. I wouldn't want that to happen to none of my family," said Barbara Strother, a Warren resident.

"We just wanted to honor the teens that died in the accident last Sunday and we wanted to encourage and show support for the families," said Judy Campbell, vigil coordinator.

Believers Church donated the candles for the vigil.
