Bowling Green State University to hold vigil for 3 killed in wrong-way crash

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio - Bowling Green State University plans to honor three sorority sisters killed in a wrong-way crash with a service and candlelight vigil this week at its campus in northwest Ohio.

The Sentinel-Tribune newspaper reports the Friday evening service outside University Hall will be called "A Celebration of Sisterhood." It honors 20-year-old Rebekah Blakkolb of Aurora, 19-year-old Christina Goyett of Bay City, Mich., and 21-year-old Sarah Hammond of Yellow Springs.

They died March 2 after a wrong-way driver slammed head-on into a car carrying five sorority members bound for a spring break trip. The wrong-way driver also died, and two more sorority members were seriously hurt.

The school has invited people to write messages on memory boards set up in the student union that will be displayed at the service.
