According to authorities, six high school students were killed on Tuesday in an accident involving a semi truck in Tishomingo, Okla., a rural city about 120 miles southeast of Oklahoma City. Sarah Stewart, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokeswoman, says no student name was released immediately, but they were all girls in a small passenger car. During an interview with Bobby Waitman, the superintendent of Tishomingo Public Schools, he said the six students all attended Tishomingo High School which is one of three in the district with a middle and an elementary school.
“This is a community that supports one another,” he said. “It’s a very close-knit community, so the entire community will be grieving these young people’s loss.”
