MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Friends and family of the Wisconsin teenagers who died in a crash on Interstate 94 earlier in this week gathered Sunday night to remember their loved ones and grieve.

Sixteen-year-old Jordan Johnson and 17-year-old Joshua Goodrich died Wednesday when the SUV they were in collided with the back of flat-bed semi on I-94 near Hudson, Wis. Two of their friends were also hurt in the crash.

The teen’s friends and family gathered at New Richmond High School, where a caring wall was made on a fence separating the school’s baseball and football fields.

One who attended the vigil described Johnson and Goodrich as “the smiling people in the hallways.”

Flowers, pictures, signs and letters covered the fence. And a table was set up with candles and framed photos of Johnson and Goodrich.

Johnson’s grandparents described him as “a special little guy.” They said he loved hunting, fishing, football and country music.

Goodrich’ sister said he loved hockey and helping other people, especially children.

“He was always willing to do things for people,” she said.
