School mates are mourning a grade 12 student from Crescent Heights High School identified as the teen killed in Tuesday’s crash on McKnight Boulevard.
17-year-old Meghan Bomford was in the front passenger seat when an SUV driven by her father Sean Bomford rolled several times.
Meghan’s father and and her friend, 16 year old Kelsey Nelson remain in hospital with severe injuries.
Police believe speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
Meghan’s mother Lisa has released a statement:
“Our beloved Meghan was tragically taken from our lives at too young of an age. With so much ahead of her, we are all grieving that we will no longer get to share graduation, birthdays, weddings and other things she was looking forward to. She was such a feisty, gorgeous and loving girl who has a love for all things ringette. Kelsey and her were on their way to get their police checks to become junior ringette coaches and now one has been taken and the other sweet girl, Kelsey, is fighting for her life.”
A Go Fund Me campaign has been launched to help the family with funeral costs for Meghan.
