The flag in front of St. Brother André Catholic High School in Markham was lowered to half-mast Tuesday in memory of Sara Nicole Girard, killed in a car accident just days after graduating.
Two of her classmates were critically injured in the crash.
“I have spoken to each of the families,” said principal Dan Zaroski. “It’s just a very, very tough time.”
Girard, 17, died Monday evening when the van she was in rolled over on Highway 11 near Burk’s Falls and veered into a ditch.
The Stouffville teen was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
Girard was returning from a cottage weekend with her two girlfriends, Allison Neville, 17, of Markham, and Meghan Timewell, 18, also of Stouffville. They were airlifted to Sunnybrook hospital in critical condition.
