POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Three teenagers from Poplar Bluff, Missouri were killed in a car crash on Saturday, October 14.

It happened on Route W about a mile north of Poplar Bluff around 10 p.m.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, Linda Schulz, 16, was driving when her car crossed the center line, ran off the road, and hit a tree.

Schulz died at the scene.

Two of her passengers, Camille McCain, 16, and Cody Logan, 14, both died as a result of the crash. A third passenger, Martez Janis, 14, was taken to a Memphis hospital by helicopter.

Poplar Bluff Athletic Director Kent Keith said the teenagers were student-athletes at Poplar Bluff.

"The community of Poplar Bluff suffered a terrible loss and tragedy this weekend," Keith said. "Our thoughts and prayers should be with the families, friends, and students of the high school."

Now, the school and the community are coming together to mourn the loss.

"A lot of us were upset and heartbroken so we decided to acknowledge what had happened because it can't go without acknowledgment," said Student Council President Jayla Matlock.

They set up a prayer vigil on Sunday where hundreds gathered to mourn and celebrate the three teens.

They also set up a memorial outside the school for people to drop off balloons, flowers and other tokens of remembrance.
