DUXBURY, Vt. (AP) — Students have returned to a Vermont high school for the first time since four classmates and another teen in the community were killed in a fiery crash caused by a wrong-way driver.
The hallways at Harwood Union High School were quiet Tuesday morning, and the flag outside the school flew at half-staff.
School officials say a memorial space has been set up, and students and staff will be given the time and space they need to process their grief.
The four Harwood juniors and a girl who attended another school died late Saturday when their car was struck and burst into flames.
Meanwhile, the condition of the man accused of causing the crash has been upgraded from critical to serious.
A candlelight vigil was held for the teens Monday night.
