Prayer vigil held for crash victims

Friends of two teens injured in a four-vehicle crash last week gathered at Sturgis High School for a prayer vigil.

Friends of Jillian Romanyk and Fekile Lind organized Sunday’s event. The two are in critical condition at a Kalamazoo hospital after the Chevy Silverado they were in crossed the center line on U.S. 12 about 4 p.m. Friday in Burr Oak Township.

The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department said a 16-year-old driver and 17-year-old passenger were driving west on U.S. 12 when the vehicle crossed the centerline and struck a Buick Encore driven by 20-year-old Nayeli Delpaz-Arroyo. The Silverado continued west and struck head on a vehicle driven by Juan Nico-Ramirez.

This rendered the vehicle disabled in the road when a second Chevy Silverado, traveling east, struck the original vehicle.
