Hundreds Mourn Teens Killed in Crash

Teens killed after being ejected from SUV during one-car crash Saturday

Speaking and texting messages of loss, hurt and support, hundreds of Pottstown High School students attended a vigil Tuesday night for two girls lost in a tragic car crash.

Breanne Brothers, 15, and Andrea Antonio-Harris, 16, were killed after being ejected from an SUV during an accident Saturday night.

Four others were hurt in the crash. Police are investigating the incident.

Candles and cell phones lit up the lawn outside the suburban Montco high school as classmates and strangers honored the memories of two lives cut short.

Family members of the victims who attended the vigil were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support.

"It makes me really happy to see everyone here," Breanne's older sister Jennifer Latshaw said. "She was just so beautiful."

Vigil attendees were offered a unique way to share their feelings, though a text message service that displayed messages on a large projection screen. Many students shared messages of loss and hope with the crowd through the system.
