Kyle Mathers, 19, Holly Novak, 18, and Dale Neibaur, 19, died in the crash near Greenville, Tex. Two others, Kevin DiCicco, 19, also a HHS grad, and Hannah Galbraith, 18, were badly injured.

The teens were heading to a video game conference near Austin when a wrong-way driver slammed into their car. The driver of that car also died.

The HHS grads were all former members of the HHS Marching Band. Many band members were among the community members who gathered at a memorial service at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Herndon in the days following the crash.
