Funerals being held today for Hickory High School teens

Posted: Updated:
HERMITAGE, Pa. -

Funeral services are scheduled today at Notre Dame Church in Hermitage for the two Hickory High School students who died in a traffic accident on Interstate 80 in Mercer County this week.

Services will be held at 11:30 this morning for 16-year-old Alexis Myers and at 2:30 pm for 15-year-old Danielle Nelson.

Long lines of friends, teachers, family members and others could be seen Thursday during calling hours for the teens at the John Flynn Funeral Home and McGongle Funeral Home.

The Hermitage Police Department helped control the traffic by directing drivers where to park and helping people cross the busy street safely.

Many of those attending the funerals wore Hickory colors and clothing.

Both teens were students at Hickory High School.

They were 2 of 4 teens in the car when their SUV lost control and was hit by a tractor-trailer Sunday evening as they were heading to a faith-based program at Grove City College.
