Teens who died in crash will be honored Sunday
NIXA, Mo. (AP) - Four teens killed in a southwest Missouri crash will be remembered Sunday at a candlelight vigil.
The Springfield News-Leader (http://sgfnow.co/1yv5ILK ) reports that the vigil will get underway at 5 p.m. at the Union Hill Church of Christ in Nixa. The crash happened Wednesday night when a pickup truck hit a tree in Stone County.
The driver, 17-year-old Landon Potts of Nixa, was killed, along with three of his seven passengers. The Missouri State Highway Patrol identified the victims as 19-year-old Logan Middleton, of Nixa; 19-year-old Lance Porterfield, of Sparta; and 19-year-old Cody Uber, of Nixa.
Two other passengers were taken to a Springfield hospital with serious injuries. A CoxHealth spokeswoman says one of those teens has been discharged, and the other teen's condition has been upgraded to stable.
