FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Students and staff at North Dakota State University will gather Thursday to remember four freshmen killed in a car crash in Minnesota while heading back to campus.

A release from NDSU says a campus memorial service is scheduled for 9 p.m. in the Memorial Union Ballroom to remember the four students: 18-year-olds Lauren Peterson, of Prior Lake, Minn.; Megan Sample of Rogers, Minn.; Danielle Renninger of Excelsior, Minn.; and 19-year-old Jordann Playle of Elk River, Minn. A candlelight vigil will be held outside at 10 p.m.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the teens’ car crossed the median of Interstate 94 near Alexandria Monday afternoon and was struck by an SUV, which was hit by a third vehicle.

    The families of these girls can’t just move on a few days after they lost their children… have some respect. Hope nothing happens to your love ones and someone shows the same compassion you obviously have in your heart for these families.

      I am so sorry for all the family and friends. Tragic, hope I never have to walk in your shoes.

      Then let their families greive without the media bombarding us about this accident. Jeez…four college girls die in an accident and it’s front page news for a week…many more are MURDERED in N Mpls and it’s a 10 second story on the news.
