Family and friends remember lives of 2 teens lost in crash

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Family and friends mourned the sudden deaths of two teen passengers involved in a car crash on the evening of Friday, September 13 at makeshift memorial on Sheed Road over the weekend.

One victim has been identified as Rachel McGrath, 16, of McAuley High School and the other victim has been identified as Eric Moormann, 19.

McAuley posted a notice on its school website, alerting students and parents about counseling and spiritual services offered for McGrath from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Annie Schultz drove McGarth to school everyday and says that McGrath was a transfer student.

"We were the people that had kind of made her feel at home in a way, but she's one of the happiest, friendliest girls you will ever meet in your entire life. She's really a great person," said Schultz.

Justin Miniard, a friend of Moormann, reflects on his dedication and personality at Colerain High School while they went to school together.

"He was just a great guy, I've known him since I was probably in pre-school...grew up. He was a great athlete, soccer player. Had a lot of pride in our school. Just a really fun guy to hang out with," said Miniard.

Schultz and Miniard were two of many people who came to pay their respects at the memorial.

A private prayer service will be held at in the McAuley High School Auditorium on Sunday, September 15, at 4:00 p.m. to remember the victims.
