In commemoration of the four adolescents who died in a vehicle accident on Saturday, a vigil with a balloon release was conducted in Hickory Hills, Illinois.
According to sources, at approximately 2:30 p.m., the adolescent driver of the Mercedes SUV in which the four were travelling lost control of his car. The SUV was carrying six teenagers when it struck a tree and split in half.
Unfortunately, only the driver and the front-seat passenger survived the collision.
The other four were not so fortunate. According to reports, two of the adolescents died at the site, while the others perished from their wounds at the hospital.
The victims were named as Omarion Rieves, Jemerrio Rieves, Nathan Phillips, and Destini Guerra, all of whom were under the age of 18.
They were babies, 17,16,15, like that there is no way to terminate their life for a momentary satisfaction, said Jocelyn Gonzalez, a buddy of the victims.
Leontyne Walker is the mom of two brothers killed in the collision, Omarion and Jemerrio.
She understands it’s difficult to lose one kid, but to bury two at the same time, she remarked.
They usually check-in, and when she doesn’t hear anything, as a mom, one gets a strong intuition that something isn’t well.
Omarion was meant to begin football training the next day. He recently finished his senior pictures.
They were simply trying to have fun, but it’s not worth it, because look at us now. Now she must bury both of her sons.
My heart breaks for the victims’ families; this is a nightmare that no one should have to go through.
