Friends & Family Hold Vigil For Crash Victims

July 28, 2012, 10:36 PM by Lindsey Branwall

Friends & Family Hold Vigil For Crash Victims
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Two people were seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning.

And at the intersection where the accident happened, a candlelight vigil was held Saturday night for the victims.

Family and friends of Saturday morning's victims gathered at 26th and Grange. Riding in on motorcycles, they honored the passengers with a candlelight vigil.

Many left mementos, candles and roses at a small memorial at the intersection. As candles burned brightly, warm memories of the riders were exchanged.

"Everybody she met liked talking to her," Jeni Fenolio, a friend of one of the victim said. "She was easy to talk to, willing to help everybody."

While Heather Schmidt, who lives near the intersection, didn't know either of the two victims personally, she came to support someone who helped one of them.
  
"My brother was the first one to find her," Schmidt said. "He was walking home and saw a body laying in the middle of the road and he went over and put her head in his lap and held her until the EMTs arrived."

Schmidt wants to spread awareness of what happened, especially after the texting and driving accident just half a mile away earlier this week.

"I have children that walk this road every day," Schmidt said.

Sioux Falls Police have yet to confirm the names or updated conditions of either of the two victims and the investigation continues.
