Students, staff from Breaux Bridge school show support for surviving crash victim

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Students and staff from Breaux Bridge Junior High School are showing their support and love for the surviving victim of a deadly crash.

The superintendent, the principal, and several teachers delivered cards Thursday evening made by the students to Niya Flugence, 13, who is recuperating in a Baton Rouge hospital. Flugence is a student at the school.

Flugence along with Cornasha Flugence, 15, and Kylee Henry, 14, were hit by a truck while walking to school.

Flugence was the only survivor. The other girls died. The driver of the truck, Jeremy Abraham, faces several charges including vehicular homicide.

"We hope she will accept these cards with the love that was put into designing them," said Supt. Lottie Beebe. "The students miss her and are eager for her to return to them."

Beebe said the school also held a celebration of life in which they released balloons for the girls who died in the crash. The school will also hosts fundraisers to help the families.

Meanwhile, funeral services for the two girls are set for Friday at Philadelphia Church in Lafayette.
